Is there a way to see a diff of a "replaced" file?

I have a "release" directory made up mostly of files from various
independent applications. I use "svn copy" to get files from tags of
those various applications into this shared release directory. This
lets me see exactly which changes went into each application in a
given release.

But, somebody made a fix in that "release" directory instead of where
it belonged, in the application's development directory. So when I did
my next "svn copy" and replaced the existing file, the changes were

And since the file shows as "Replaced" in the log, the diff goes back
to the "copy from" address instead of the file at the current location
(in the last revision). Normally, I want this. But in this case...is
there a way to get a diff with the file that was replaced? For now, I
can "update to revision..." to get the old copy and save it off, but I
was wondering for future use if there is an easier way.
