I'm going to retire that option when I get a chance since it causes
too much confusion. Please try this:

  Using phenix.refine 1.4-3:
    phenix.refine --diff-params your.def > your.dif

  Using new release:
    phenix.refine your.dif

If that fails because of unused parameters, review and edit your.dif
and try again.
It is not as convenient as --unused-ok, but should rule out surprises.

Nope. Maybe we'll change it in the future, so that the new phenix.refine
can do the diff with the old phenix.refine version automatically
(if you still have it installed).
