No. The OP said the files had the same MD5SUM, so the line endings
must be identical in that case.

Yes, of course. The files are shown as different if there is any
difference at all. How could the Subversion know what settings you are
using in your external merge tool? It is possible that if you use
svn:eol-style the line endings will all be silently corrected when you
commit. Not sure about that.

I don't believe that is possible. The diff preview function that we
use only generates a list of files that have changed, which is a quick
operation. In order to find out whether the change is interesting to
you would require downloading the 'before' and 'after' copies of every
changed file and running the diff with your preferred options to find
out what the differences are. If the change includes 1000 files and
you are not using a LAN connection that could take a *very* long time
just to return the list.
