diary always leaves ~/.diary with the leading newline that it adds, and
it has always done it.

I suggest that you remove it.
RMS reads this list - I hope he will withdraw his insistence.

At any rate, these are two separate issues: the redisplay crash and the
newline in diary.

PS. may I suggest that you add some defvars in diary-lib.el to avoid
compiler warnings?
