But if I omit one of the elements (say 'threat'), it won't ignore any of the lines even though I would expect it to only return the 'threat' lines as different. Does anyone have any ideas or explanation of this behavior?

bad RE format, i suspect.  '(term1|term2|term3)'

i do not know if any of those chars needs to be escaped, since its in single
quotes.  but, depends on how cvs execs diff.
