I was running an older build of BC2, I just tried
the newest build, and you are correct that the newer one works
properly. If you want to see the double backslashes, change
the external diff command to

cmd /k echo %base %mine

and it will display the names of the files as they're being
passed to the external program.

My Temp environment variable has no trailing backslash, unless
Windows is adding it automatically.

Thanks for helping me find a way to deal with the problem from
the other end.
