When verify_diff_w() is used we care about the result, not
the verbose output, and although we use -q, that still
gives us a chatty message about if the files differ or not.
Since verify_diff_w() uses stdinput the chatty message says
whether or not "-" matches the target file, and this just
seems rather odd. Better to just ignore that messsage all
together, what we really care about i sthe results, the
return value and we check for that.
