If file contains two consequenced nul chars it is threaded as binary.
You can use hex viewer/editor to check that.
I would guess that downloading that revision (e.g. update to revision),
making change, and trying to diff with T-Merge would lead to error. This
would means that file revison is recognized as binary.

I was asking if you can find that error in
https://tortoisesvn.googlecode.com/svn/trunk repository log. But this
request is based on expectation that it is bug in TSVN, while as you
have problem with one revision I would focus on that revision of file
(see point 1).
