It was [^ \t] in ediff from the beginning.  I changed it to [^\t] in ediff
because I wanted to take care of files that have spaces in their names. But
this was wrong and I reverted the change back to [^ \t].

I am not sure how that same change got into diff-mode.el. Maybe I did
something mechanically and did not notice.
