VisualEditor: Appending to a line shows additions before end of line in diff
Open, NormalPublic


Steps to reproduce:

  1. Find a page that already has a category
  2. Edit in VE, and add a category
  3. Review changes

Expected results:
The diff is
+[[Category:New cat]]

Actual results:
The diff is
-[[Category:Old cat]]
+[[Category:Old cat]][[Category:New cat]]

With the chunk between the stars viewed as added.

This also happens in the source editor, but it is less common that people will append a category to an existing category as that is against all style guidelines. However the Visual Editor is doing just that.
