I agree.  Sometimes after a difference section, JBuilder's diff sees a line that contains only a "{" or a "*/" and decides that it has gotten to the end of a difference section.  After that, it can go horribly wrong, reporting that virtually the entire rest of the file has been changed.

I have seen cases where JBuilder's diff reported ove 500 lines were different between two versions of a module, but when compared using the "cvs diff" command, it showed less than 20 lines were different.
