I've seen this before. It's because in the conversion, the keywords
are expanded and stored expanded in the repository. Subversion isn't
used to seeing a keyword come out of the repository already expanded,
and seems to get confused when it attempts to diff between the
text-base and the file in the working copy.

I'm not sure what the real solution is here...
