I don't think anything is wrong. When you do an "Update" and changes to a dirty file are merged into your working copy there is really no easy way to see the diffs. What you should do if you commit and it fails due to out of date WC file then do a Diff with URL at that point. This will show you the diff between what you have and what is in the repository.

You could try a BLAME but I'm not sure what that will show on a working copy.

You can also do a diff in the repository (log viewer) of the HEAD and the previous revision to see what changes that were made and merged into your source.

Of course, if you just DIFF your file would you not remember what changes YOU made and what changes are there that you didn't make?
