If you're just concerned about the size of the files (rather than
privacy), you can send them to address@hidden

They won't be sent out to the bug list, but we can download them from
the bug web-page.

What units are these file sizes in? Is it possible that the size of
the resulting diff is simply too large for Emacs?

And if you execute

diff u:/aemf/register-anbindung/templates-keine-funktionale-aenderung.txt

outside of Emacs, how big is the result?
