For me, the Diff buffer shows the diff between the current buffer
contents and the original file:

diff -c /home/cyd/nonexistingfile /tmp/buffer-content-18622n-F
*** /home/cyd/nonexistingfile   2006-09-19 17:49:40.000000000 -0400
--- /tmp/buffer-content-18622n-F        2006-09-19 17:52:12.000000000 -0400
*** 1 ****
! a
\ No newline at end of file
--- 1 ----
! ab
\ No newline at end of file

Diff finished.  Tue Sep 19 17:52:12 2006

I followed your instructions precisely.  No bug.  The first thing you
should try is to use the latest version of Emacs in CVS, and see if
the bug is present.
