'svn diff' reports changes in the working copy wrt the base version of
the working copy. Try 'svn diff -r HEAD' or, if you only want remote
changes 'svn diff -rBASE:HEAD'.

PS: I suspected this would be the 'problem'. We call this 'user
error'. Could you post a bit more inquisitively instead of crying
loudly there are bugs in the software which are unacceptable? Lots of
people use these operations every day: this would have come out WAY
before you ever typed these commands.
