You need to show us specific examples, not give us descriptions of what
you think you're doing. If we can see your exact commands and results,
we can de-confuse you and show you what's really happening.

I hope you understand that 'svn diff foo.c bar.c' does *not* compare
foo.c and bar.c with each other! It means, "show me any local changes
on foo.c, then show me any local changes on bar.c". That might be
leading to your confusion.

There's no way (at this time) to have 'svn diff' compare two working
copies. That's probably the source of confusion.
