Are you sure that you really modified that file?
Just comparing the file with its BASE (.svn/text-base/file) is not
enough: depending on which properties you've set, those files can be
different but still not really be different.

For example, if you've set the svn:keywords property, the BASE has the
all the keywords *not* expanded, while the file in the working copy has
them expanded.
The svn:eol-style property will have the file in the working copy have
the eols set according to the property, while the BASE file will have LF
eols.

So, please make sure that the file *really* was modified.
