 Yes, but your error message prints the expected path c:, whereas
 Roger's printed D:. Something still seems odd here...

It's the old diff3 invoking diff problem. In both cases svn appears
to have executed the diff3.exe and in both cases diff3 has failed to
find diff. The path in the error message does not refer to the
missing diff executable, it refers to the diff3 executable that was
run.

I guess both the diff3s were looking for c:/.../diff.exe and neither
found it.
