 I discovered that Subversion is assuming the C: drive (system drive),
 it ignores the drive specification in the registry and in the config file.
  I had installed both cygwin Subversion on D:.
 After adding C:/cygwin/bin and copying diff diff3 to it, the errors went
 away.

What's strange to me is that the error message indicates that it was
trying to invoke D:/cygwin/bin/diff3.exe, which is where you
originally put it. Why would the error have the right location, yet
the invocation was really looking in C:?

Or another way to ask the same thing is, how did you diagnose this?
