That is odd... It seems svn behaves differently on Linux than under
Windows. On both FC2, SuSE and debian Linux distros, svn diff defaults
to ignoring whitespace, but on windows it defaults to flagging whitespace.

svn diff --diff-cmd diff -x -w <file>
is your friend on Windows to skip whitespace


svn diff --diff-cmd diff <file>
is your friend on Linux to show whitespace diffs
