Hmm, maybe I mix it with something then. I recall some efforts, maybe by 
Peter to get this fixed in PCB or in gschem. Or else my memory 
just fails.

Yes, I agree it is not too bad for the diffs in practice, at least when 
I edit a file alone on multiple computers I rarely see actual problems - 
except diffs caused by storing the date.
