svn 1.4.5 bug with diff on binary files

From: Wade Carpenter <wade.carpenter_at_gmail.com>

This seems to be related to 1019:
http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=1019

I'm running svn client 1.4.5:
svn --version
svn, version 1.4.2 (r22196)
   compiled Jan 18 2007, 11:56:49

If I use svn internal diff, this problem is not present.

For external diff, I set diff-cmd=/usr/bin/diff in my .subversion/config file.
/usr/bin/diff --version
diff (GNU diffutils) 2.8.1

Example output:
svn diff -r11827 subidr/
Index: subidr/file.bin
===================================================================
Binary files subidr/file.bin (revision 11827) and
subidr/file.bin (working copy) differ
../svn_1.4.5/subversion/libsvn_subr/io.c:2230: (apr_err=200012)
svn: '/usr/bin/diff' returned 2

Could someone please verify that this is a bug? If so, should I
reopen 1019 or file a new bug?

Thanks,
Wade
