That's how the diff algorithm works. Since we're using the Subversion
diff library, we can't change this. Sorry.

As I said: this is a Subversion issue, not a TSVN one. You have to
report it on their mailing list.

That's not possible, because TSVN uses the Subversion library and can't
interfere with updates/commits/... at all.

But those two files (form and report) have the same name but only differ
in extension? (E.g. form.frm and form.rpt). Then you can 'guess' the
name of the other file in your diff script.
