I am planning a quick fix ;)
I never saw code of subversion before , though at point where we get the
list of file, do a sort .
Unfortunately I don't had time before end of the month or even more ,
This random thing does not came in a good time .
I use many svn diff to review my code ...

So any ideas is appreciated.
Thanks,
