It's a different bug. It's real simple, '\n' is never encountered in
the binary data before a '\0'. I'll rehash the svn_diff_file token
stuff to account for this tomorrow. Might aswell switch to mmapping
then too. Anyhow, this bug shows it's ugly head because we are running
text diff on binary data, which shouldn't happen in the first place.
I thought we had an issue on this which was already closed, but am
not sure.
