In the commit window one can make whitespace visible. The first column is used to display the chars + or - for the diffs. But it shows dots in unchanged lines when whitespace is visible. This can be confusing when I try to eliminate whitespace from otherwise empty lines. For those it displays “·LF” although there is no whitespace in that line. I suggest to keep the first column empty if no +, - or @ displayed.
