And are these files that you have edited / added?  They are NOT text
files in the Unix sense of the word, so diff cannot handle them.
file(1) shows:

$ file gammu_pl.txt gammu_us.txt
gammu_pl.txt: Little-endian UTF-16 Unicode character data
gammu_us.txt: Little-endian UTF-16 Unicode character data

So something is wrong just by virtue of the fact that these files are
carrying a .txt extension.  If I try to convert these files into a
sensible encoding on my system, I get a long string of CJK characters.
Is that what these files are supposed to contain?
