you must not put your own scripts into the TSVN installation folder.
That's not a user folder!

TSVN modifies the registry according to the files which get installed
into its Diff-Scripts folder. Since you put your own diff script there,
TSVN assumes that the file got installed there by the TSVN installer and
creates the registry entry for the diff script itself.

Move your own diff script somewhere else, and you'll be fine.
