 etcupdate just calls sdiff(1) to do the merge.  And i"m pretty sure we
 haven't updated diffutils in quite a while...
 You can easily try to reproduce it with something like:
   sdiff -w $(stty size | cut -d' ' -f 2) -s -a -o merged old new
 Are you sure you have correct cols value in stty?  (I see that you use
 amd64, my first hunch was arm with the "unified" display/serial
 console, doing the merge on a serial in a smaller term - you'd get
 cols from the wide(r) display there).
