I think I found a bug in TortoiseSVN, Unable to diff Docm documents

I think I have found a bug in TortoiseSVN. I am writing a document in Microsoft Word 2007. In the start I used the new format with docx. The commit and diff works great. Then I did a commit I could see the difference between revision thru TortoiseSVN and it would open Microsoft Word with the comparison mode. But later on I implemented some macros in my document. And in Word 2007 you need to save the file as a "Word-document with macros", .docm. I updated the rep. and the .docm file was committed. But now I don't have the possible to compare the revision because TortoiseSVN is trying to compare the revision with TortoiseSVN diff/merge tool, and it fails and says that it is not a text file.

So I think that TortoiseSVN needs some simple fix to say that the .docm file should be treated as .docx documents.

I have search in archive and issue tracker and I not found any one with same problem.
