There's nothing to fix. By default, status and diff both work
relative to the version of the files you've checked out. Status will
tell you if you've changed anything locally, and diff will tell you
what the differences between the version you checked out (or updated
to) and your current version are. To compare against the current
version in the repos you can use 'svn status -u' or 'svn diff
-rBASE:HEAD'
