'svn diff' on Windows

  I have diff and diff3 in the required location

    C:\>dir "C:\Program Files\cygnus\cygwin\bin\"
     Datenträger in Laufwerk C: ist Windows2K
     Datenträgernummer: 7498-3CC2

     Verzeichnis von C:\Program Files\cygnus\cygwin\bin

    30.06.2002 10:10 <DIR> .
    30.06.2002 10:10 <DIR> ..
    06.04.2002 12:11 95.744 diff.exe
    06.04.2002 12:11 25.088 diff3.exe
                   2 Datei(en) 120.832 Bytes
                   2 Verzeichnis(se), 4.430.688.256 Bytes frei

  But 'svn diff' gives me

    apr_error: #22503, src_err 0:
    <Das System kann den angegebenen Pfad nicht finden.>
    error starting c:\progra~1\cygnus\cygwin\bin\diff.exe process

  I *believe* I didn't do anything wrong this time -- so what could be
  the reason for this?

  On a side note: why does the location for the diffutils need to be
  hardcoded? I have diff.exe and diff3.exe in my PATH, and not everyone
  installs cygwin to c:\program files\cygnus\cygwin\, or uses cygwin
  versions of the tools in the first place.
