svn diff fails to report differences (1.3.2)

I mistakenly posted this to the commit list instead of here:

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.

svn diff
svn update

I expected "svn diff" to show the changes that I had commited to the
repository. It didn't show anything at all.
