[tex-k] Bug in C/TIE?!

Hello group,

I find that both TIE and CTIE fail to apply the innocent change file

@* Index.

to the innocent main file

@* Intro.

@* Index.

with the innocent command line

$ [c]tie -c main-intro.ch main.w change.ch

The single change is chopped to

@* Index.

without the necessary '@y' and '@z'.

Adding anything -- an empty line or @qBug in C/TIE@> -- in change.ch 
results in a valid main-intro.ch.

Is this a known (mis)feature?
