Re: more eol confusion: "diff" shows all lines differing :(

    Did you use the command line client for the diff? If not: please
    describe the steps you took to do the diff with TSVN.

No, I used TSVN itself. I prepared TSVN by right-clicking some random
file, choosing "Settings", and typing in the path to windiff.exe in
the appropriate box. Then I did the diff proper by right-clicking the
file and choosing "diff".

    If you do the command "compare with working copy" in the
    log dialog then TSVN first does a 'svn cat' to get the file from
    the revision you selected and then starts WinDiff.

Thanks, I didn't know about that feature of TSVN. It works, but it's
painfully slow. The slowness would be acceptable if I were comparing
against an older version, but since I'm comparing against my
"pristine" working copy, I'd hoped it would be fast.

    Do you know the svn:eol-style property?

Yes; see my original post:

    svn add hello
    svn propset svn:eol-style native hello
    svn -m '' ci
