bug#5302 reports the same problem with Bzr diffs.

In both cases diff separators (a line of dashes)
are ignored by `diff-sanity-check-hunk'.

Both bugs can be fixed with the patch below.

I suppose that modifying the buffer with inserting a newline
is a temporary workaround for some earlier bug, so I added
a check for the diff separator in another condition branch.
The comment says that adding an empty line is for code which
doesn't count lines.  I don't know where this code is located,
but perhaps this code should also check for diff separators?
