That's because your working file needs to be 'detranslated' in order to
be compared to the .svn/text-base/ or repository file.

By 'detranslated', I mean: keywords removed (from $Rev: 27$ to $Rev$)
and eol-style converted to LF. This is the way all files are stored in
the repository whenver svn:eol-style or svn:keywords are being used.
