I can't reproduce this on

  Emacs (i686-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 2.8.20)

which is the same configuration you said in your original bug report.

The *Diff* buffer is correctly populated with the difference between
the two files.

Can you check that the M-x diff command works properly?  It may be
that you don't have diff installed.
