svn diff issue

I am having a minor issue with svn diff.
This is the setup:
 /vendors/component1 -- vendor drop of the component
 /trunk/component1 -- copied from vendor and we've made changes here

I checkout /trunk/component1.

I have made modification to a few files. I want to see the diff
between my changes and the trunk. I do "svn diff" and it shows the
diff; all's well.

I also want to do a diff of the changed files with the vendor branch.
So I use "svn diff --old=vendor-url --new=<current-dir>". This works
for all files except one. Unfortunately for one particular file, it
does not show any diff even though I have made changes. If I checkout
the vendor branch to a different directory and diff the offending
file, it does show the diff. After struggling with it for a while, I
did the svn diff with the --notice-ancestry option. Now it shows the
diff for the offending files too.
I am not able to understand the reasons for this. Can you tell me what
could be issue with the file that causes this behaviour?

Thanks much
