I experienced the same problem.
It is yet another manifestation of issue #169:
<http://code.google.com/p/tortoisesvn/issues/detail?id=169>.

It happens on files whose short (8.3) filename is longer than the
actual filename. For example, it happens on a file called "file.docx"
(9 characters), which translates to "file~1.doc" (10 characters).

The effect is that the file is not recognized as a file, but as a
directory, and there is not Diff option for directories. You can
verify by having a look at the "Subversion" property sheet, which
will show the URL and properties of the parent directory and not of
the file itself.

Upgrading to the newest nightly build fixes the problem.

Merry Christmas,
