I just lost some of my precious data and I am going to have to re-edit my files, fortunately they are very similar.
2.12.4.0
if you specify 3 files on the command line to start the program, e.g.
winmergeu filepath1 filepath2 filepath3
winmergeu will copy one of the files over the top of the others without asking. you have just lost one of your file contents.

    Here is a snippet from the Help http://manual.winmerge.org/Command_line.html about the third path on the command line:

    The third, output path is rarely needed when you start WinMerge from the command line. It is meant to be used with version control tools, where you might need to specify a third path for the result file. If you specify a third path, WinMerge still shows only two files in the File Compare window. However, if you save either of these files, it is written to the third path, leaving the two source files intact.
