Bug#379453: vimdiff should detect edits within a line

Package: vim-python
Version: 1:7.0-017+5
Severity: wishlist
File: /usr/bin/vim.python

If I am comparing two files with vimdiff and I add or delete a line
to/from one, vimdiff automatically updates the display and lets me
use the usual commands to push the change over to the other file.

However, if I simply edit part of an existing line without changing
linebreaks , vimdiff does not notice the change and I have to employ
a hack to be able to push the change: yank-paste the line, then
delete the original one.

It would be nice if this were fixed. Thanks,

Please do not send copies of list mail to me; I read the list!
