Slow diff

is the default svn diff algorithm slow? Trying to diff a 17MB text
file takes forever.

Try this:

  1. create new repo
  2. create checkout
  3. download http://www.info.uni-karlsruhe.de/~zwinkau/gen_patterns.c.repo.gz,
gunzip and check it into the repo
  4. overwrite the file with the gunzipped
  5. svn diff the file
  6. ...wait...

If i use "--diff-cmd diff" instead, it takes a second on my machine.
