I absolutely understand that, however see below -

I cannot reproduce this using the above mentioned sources. After downloading 
and compiling, I used the following cmd:
diff --side-by-side -t -W100 file1.txt file2.txt
where file1 represents rev1.1 and file2 rev.1.2
The output is exactly what I expect:

end

The cvs output however is different:-(

I don't actually see what I should report. IMHO diffutils work as expected. Do 
I miss something?
