Visual merge tool & the diff-cmd config

Recently I asked a question about what Visual merge tools folks use on
Windows. It's a deal blocker for our VSS users if they can't do
graphical merges! :) A couple of folks suggested TortoiseMerge which
I'm currently playing with.
Unfortunately, I'm completely stuck on how to get this to work with the
diff-cmd config. Currently I have the config looking something like
diff-cmd = C:\Program Files\TortoiseSVN\TortoiseMerge.exe

When I then attempt a diff (svn diff foo.cs) svn does indeed launch
TortoiseMerge. However, it doesn't get the files associated with the
merge. Instead it pops up a dialog asking me to select the files to
merge. I also tried this with windiff.exe and can not get it to work
there either.

Perhaps I'm setting this wrong. I looked in the book and didn't really
find any examples. I also am having a hard time finding any
documentation that shows what svn is passing to the external program as

In any case, I'm curious if anyone has some examples of how they got
this to work on Windows with TortoiseMerge of any other diff & diff3
program for that matter...
