If you get the three pane view in TMerge, that means that the file in
the repository (the url you chose to compare with) isn't the same as the
unmodified file in your working copy.

I just tried this with a file in the TSVN working copy: it shows the
proper two-way diff since I know it hasn't changed in the repository.
I only get a three-way diff if I use my test repo and make sure that the
url I diff with has one (or more) revs added than the file in my working
copy (and the local file has modifications).
