Diff file creation

Thanks for a wonderful product.

I am not sure this is really a bug or simply operator error. The problem may also
be complicated by the fact that I am using WinMerge.

Occasionally I want a unified diff file of my working copy with an earlier
revision - say Rev 45. This is easily done with the subversion command:
   svn diff -r 45 > diff.txt

I expected to be able to easily do this with TortioseSVN as well,
but I keep having problems. In my working copy, I do 'Show log', select the
desired revision and right-click to open the Context Menu.
Selecting "Compare with working copy" brings up TortoiseMerge and a pane of the
changed files. This is great, but I can't find the actual diff file.

So then I repeat the process and in the Context Menu select the option
"Show changes as unified diff". Now I get a WinMerge screen and a "Select Files
or Folders" menu. The Left: field is filled in with
C:\Documents and Settings\rfletcher\Local Settings\Temp\Test.diff.003.tmp.diff
the Right: field is blank and invalid, and I am stuck.

At this point I decided to look at the above file ...\Test.diff.003.tmp.diff.
Indeed, this appears to be the desired diff file, but finding it was not very
obvious to me. I expect there is something simple that I am overlooking.
