 We /do/ have a config option for the location of diff, diff3 and whether
 or not diff3 accepts --diff-program. With a reasonably recent Cygwin,
 that last should be true, which in fact is the default on Windows.
 Please look in the following locations:
     %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\Subversion\config
     %USERPROFILE%\Application Data\Subversion\config
 and in the Registry:
 and tell us what's in the [helpers] section there. I'm 99% certain this
 is a configuration error.

* %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\Subversion\config:
directory Subversion doesn't exist

* C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\victor\Anwendungsdaten\Subversion\config:
# [helpers]
# editor-cmd = editor (vi, emacs, notepad, etc.)
# diff-cmd = C:\Cygwin\bin\diff.exe
# diff3-cmd = C:\Cygwin\bin\diff3.exe
# diff3-has-program-arg = true

* HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Tigris.org\Subversion\Config and
* HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Tigris.org\Subversion\Config:
diff3-cmd c:\programme\cygwin\bin\diff3.exe
diff-cmd c:\programme\cygwin\bin\diff.exe

Two questions about this:
- why do two subversion config places exist in windows? (I'm
  against using the registry, because backup is ... difficult.
  or to be honest, when you backup your svn directory, do you
  really remember to backup the svn registry keys?)

- which entries have now priority: the registry entries or the
  config file? in which order? the same question for all_users
  vs current_user ...
