Bug? Compare with Working copy, no External diff shown

From: Yaroslav Pidstryhach <Yaroslav.Pidstryhach_at_inobject.com>

Hello,

I want to view differences between the working copy and one of the previous
revisions. I would also like to merge some differences (from old revisions
to working copy) using an external diff.

Action performed:

- on the project's root folder in Explorer, right click, TortoiseSVN -> Show
Log;

- in the log, a revision is selected, right click, Compare with Working
Copy.

Actual result: TortoiseMerge is displayed regardless of the settings.

Result expected: external diff/merge tool is displayed.

Additional information:

- the external diff is displayed fine when the log for a single FILE is
shown, not a folder, which means the external diff settings are correct.
They are actually copied from the help file;

- a similar case was reported here:
http://svn.haxx.se/tsvn/archive-2005-08/0186.shtml , but not resolved
("could not reproduce"). I assume this is due to file/folder behaviour
difference. Nothing more relevant or useful could be found on the subject.

Thanks a lot for any information,
Yaroslav.
