Can you give a specific example of interaction in any of these modes
that is analogous to the off-by-one behavior you're referring to? The
fundamental question is what hunk diff-mode should think the point is
looking at, when it is in some non-diff message above the first hunk.
The answer I chose for the new navigation logic is "first hunk". You
could also choose "invalid hunk, not a hunk at all", which would imply
that C-c C-a and M-ret and such shouldn't work there. Better suggestions

I don't use auto-refinement, so didn't notice the breakage. Will look at
it in a bit.

In the meantime, I'm attaching a patch to address the 2nd point in the
bug report (25105). This serves to treat the junk before the first hunk
(i.e. commit message from 'git format-patch') as a file header. Looks
