could it be that for some - any - reason diff considers this particular
file as binary vs. ASCII? Just my two cents without having followed
this thread carefully, yet I remember that once setting a - correct -
MIME type property of application/something rendered the actually
pure text files immergeable for SVN and I had to replace the
correct MIME type with a fake of text/something.

Freedom quote:

    We must not confuse dissent with disloyalty. We must remember
    always that accusation is not proof and that conviction
    depends upon evidence and due process of law. We will not walk
    in fear, one of another. We will not be driven by fear into an
    age of unreason, if we dig deep in our history and our doctrine,
    and remember that we are not descended from fearful men - not
    from men who feared to write, to speak, to associate and to
    defend causes that were, for the moment, unpopular.
    This is no time for men who oppose Senator McCarthy's methods
    to keep silent, or for those who approve. We can deny our
    heritage and our history, but we cannot escape responsibility
    for the result. There is no way for a citizen of a republic to
    abdicate his responsibilities. As a nation we have come into
    our full inheritance at a tender age. We proclaim ourselves,
    as indeed we are, the defenders of freedom, wherever it
    continues to exist in the world, but we cannot defend freedom
    abroad by deserting it at home.
