I'm trying to ignore lines that match "PERFORMER", "TITLE", "FILE" in these two files:

http://pastie.org/pastes/3873528/download?key=lpmzp6bf0ea4a2o7oeisw

But it doesn't ignore it. I've had someone else try to filter them out, and he said he couldn't get it to work either.
I've established that I can ignore everything down to the first "FILE" lines in these documents, but if I try ignoring other strings, like "ISRC", it fails.

It works on other files that are very alike. E.g. these two:

http://pastie.org/pastes/3873623/download?key=qrmszjnb33kmdtzteegew

Here is my configuration file: http://pastie.org/pastes/3873692/text?key=exc0aotiutpwfbxtrlqa

    Get WinMerge 0.2011.002.145 from https://bitbucket.org/jtuc/winmerge2011/downloads, and try a line filter as follows:

    regexp:(PERFORMER\s.*|TITLE\s.*|FILE\s.*)

    (As of now, it doesn't give you the pale yellow background on ignored differences. I hope to address that later.)
