In the latter case, it's not the external diff tool that is started
but the *patch* tool. And since TMerge is the only program I know of
which can apply patchfiles, TMerge has to be started.
When you select a single revision and select "compare with working
copy", a diff is done from the selected revision to the WC (the diff
being a unified diff), and then that diff is applied to the working
copy in TMerge to show you the file-by-file differences.
