That file has incorrect line endings in the repository. It has
svn:eol-style set to native so it should be \n in the repository but
if you look at the text base you will see \r\n line endings. Thus the
file appears to have every line changed. When you revert the file you
reset the text-time, Subversion's timestamp check means that it
doesn't bother with a full text comparison. If you touch the working
copy file the diff will reappear.
