There didn't appear to be any traffic to my repository regardless if I added @BASE or not but I added it anyway since you said to.

Here's the new script for anyone interested. Thanks again for your help.

$ cat svntwdiff

# http://svn.haxx.se/users/archive-2012-04/0090.shtml

if [ -z "$1" ]; then
    echo "usage: $0 <file>"
    exit 1


if [ ! -f "${FILE}" ]; then
    echo "error: ${FILE} doesn't exist"
    exit 1

if [ -z "${TMPDIR}" ]; then

svn info "${FILE}" >/dev/null || exit $?

TMPFILE="$(mktemp "${TMPDIR}/svntwdiff.XXXXXXXXXX")"

svn cat "${FILE}"@BASE > "${TMPFILE}"

twdiff --wait --resume "${FILE}" "${TMPFILE}"

rm -f "${TMPFILE}"
