svn diff ignores externals

Hi,

I have a repository with a structure which mixes some normal and external
repositories as follows

- code_dir
|
`- src_dir
  |
  `- external_1
  |
  `- dir_1
  |
  `- external_2

where code_dir, src_dir and dir_1 are located on a repository under my
control, while external_1 and external_2 are defined by means svn:externals
keywords.

I have noticed that old svn versions were able to track down modified files
both in dir_1 and external_* directories. The last version (I am running
1.6.9) completely ignores external_1 and external_2 and give a list of
modified files located in dir_1 only. If I run "svn diff
code_dir/src_dir/external_1" I am able to see the list of modified files in
that directory too, of course.

I know I am missing something trivial, but what? I have not found any hint in
the svn book...

Thanks in advance for your help,
Max
