TortoiseProc diff and showcompare do not show property differences for file nodes

I am using:

TortoiseSVN 1.6.12, Build 20536 - 32 Bit , 2010/11/24 20:59:01
Subversion 1.6.15,
apr 1.3.8
apr-utils 1.3.9
neon 0.29.5
OpenSSL 0.9.8p 16 Nov 2010
zlib 1.2.3

Assume the following repository at https://mysvn/svn/Test:


Where foo.txt was changed between revisions 1 and 2 with property changes.

I can compare bar using either of the following commands:

tortoiseproc /command:showcompare /url1:https://mysvn/svn/Test/bar
/revision1:1 /url2:https://mysvn/svn/Test/bar /revision:2
tortoiseproc /command:diff /path:https://mysvn/svn/Test/bar /startrev:1

Both bring up the Changed Files dialog box; double-clicking on foo.txt
brings up my external diff viewer (Beyond Compare 3, if that matters)
and show the text differences and any property differences.

If I compare foo.txt directly:

tortoiseproc /command:showcompare
/url1:https://mysvn/svn/Test/bar/foo.txt /revision1:1
/url2:https://mysvn/svn/Test/bar/foo.txt /revision:2
tortoiseproc /command:diff /path:https://mysvn/svn/Test/bar/foo.txt
/startrev:1 /endrev:2

I only see the text differences.

The following commands show the property changes in the unified diff output:

tortoiseproc /command:showcompare
/url1:https://mysvn/svn/Test/bar/foo.txt /revision1:1
/url2:https://mysvn/svn/Test/bar/foo.txt /revision:2 /unified
svn diff -r 1:2 https://mysvn/svn/Test/bar/foo.txt

Ideally, the result of double-clicking on foo.txt in the Changed Files
dialog would be equivalent to performing the diff or showcompare
directly on foo.txt. We are using Tortoiseproc from a separate program
to avoid having to have yet another place to configure a diff program
and to avoid performing the work that TortoiseProc already does.
