Hi TortoiseSVN team,
First of all, congratulations of this great project which eases version control so much! I understand the power of command-line utilities (svn*), but having visual feedback and shell integration is *very* nice, specially for occasional and/or users used to IDE environments. ;-)
TortoiseSVN seems to fail in creating a patch if the MIME type is set (apparently, to application/*). This set of MIME types generally designates binary files, although it's also used for some textual content also.
Steps to reproduce:
This is probably unfeasible for a set of modified files, and has the caveat of not containing revision information (date is used instead), but may be of use for anyone experiencing similar behavior.
Hope this helps,
