I spotted that problem as well. We need to adapt the algorithm a bit more:
If the previous line is of the same kind (i.e. starting with + or -),
then we have to take it into account,
otherwise (i.e. previous line is different, such as header, hunk header,
or different sign)
then ignore previous line, as the previous line is already
having a different color.
That works for the very first line of a file as well.
