A double click only shows a diff of the text changes, not property
changes. For two reasons:
* this diff is done on the repository, not the working copy so every
diff is slow. And a double click is done often.
* users complained that they only need the text diff fast
That's why a double click now only shows the text diff. To get the
property diff as well, you have to use the context menu.

Because the double click is not one of the context menu options but
behaves slightly different.
