svn diff fails to report differences (1.3.2) (fwd)

This should go to the 'users' mailing list, not the 'svn' list (which
is an automated mailing list for commits).

For the record, 'svn diff' uses exactly the same code as 'svn update' for
repos-wc diffs and repos-repos diffs, when determining changes. While
there have been a lot of fixes to repos-wc diffs in particular recently
(they'll be included in 1.4.0), I suspect you're seeing another problem.

Malcolm

Subversion command-line client, version 1.3.2.

After moving our SVN repository to another host (different machine
with same host name), svn diff failed to work properly. I had a work
area on the repository system and commited my changes locally. I
then tried a "svn diff" from a remote client and it reported no
changes! However, when I did a "svn update", it got all my changes.

Seems to me (and I have not looked at the source) that the code that
update uses to figure out what changed is different from the code
that diff uses. This inconsistency is a bad thing.
