Yes, of course it does help. I used to view these details in the savannah web 
interface or in gitk

As you say, the question is which case works, but it's clear that in the 
originals there aren't any accented characters to lost :) so one can well be 
confident in that it works when in fact it doesn't.

In 5f86d989... you have reformatted my two-line Spanish paragraph (a 
translation of the two-line English one) onto a four-line paragraph. 
Note that Spanish language is more verbose than English (compare any manuals). 
Reformatting is fine and I know that long lines are not pretty. But, 
if the translated files do not have exactly the same paragraph in the very same 
line numbers of the ones in the originals, it is almost impossible to 
follow and locate the changes in the originals and update the translations. So, 
please let's think in a method of locating the cursor to the 
translated paragraph corresponding to a modification in the original, or let's 
keep the line numbers intact.

Sorry for all this verbose English, I'm really still thinking in Spanish.
