possible bug in tortoisemerge when diffing files containing NULLs

I've noticed what I'm pretty sure is a bug in TortoiseMerge. If I diff a
text file that contains NULLs (0x00), the text is cut off at the first NULL.
Somewhere inside TortoiseMerge, it must be using null-terminated strings.
It would be a great help to me if I could diff these files properly. These
files are human-readable (i.e. non-binary) MS SQL Server import files, which
unfortunately use the NULL character to indicate a NULL column value. SVN
does not consider these files to be binary.

Has anyone else seen this issue? Am I perhaps doing something wrong? If
it's a real bug, I'd be happy to do whatever formal bug reporting is needed.
