[TSVN] Binary file converted to text: no unified diff allowed

From: Andrei <project5_at_redrival.net>

I have files which when they were initially imported in a svn repository were
binary, but have since changed to text (FWIW, they're Delphi forms which used to
be stored in binary and now are stored as text in order to make versioning more

However, it's now not possible to see the changes in these files in a unified
diff, though it is possible to view them in the built-in diff viewer. Attempting
an unified diff will give the following error:

    Cannot display: file marked as a binary type.
    svn:mime-type = application/octet-stream

This is even though the version of which I want to view the differences and
several versions before it contain the plain text version of the files.

What is the proper way to fix this?
