A simple workaround is to use '-x S.gpg-agent'.

It'd be nice if someone would write a patch; do you have the time to write one? 
It is a volunteer project, after all, and not everyone has the same needs.

Dear Norbert,

this bugged me a few years ago when I needed to compare full filesystem 
backups (of my old Maemo). I hope to get back to my old patches but if 
you are interested (or anyone else), please see 
https://debbugs.gnu.org/db/19/19508.html (bug #19508, "[PATCH] diff: 
compare major, minor numbers of block/character special files")

Not sure if this was my only attempt. I believe I even got a response 
from a maintainer, only the patch set was not finished (or even good 
enough) so it was not accepted.

Regards,
Ondra Svoboda

Keep running into this, which was reported by someone else 1362(!) days
ago...

This really gives me the feeling that the GNU project is slowly dying.
