Confirmed in 1.8.3 with Windows 7 32 bit.
        svn, version 1.8.3 (r1516576)
           compiled Aug 28 2013, 10:07:20 on x86-microsoft-windows

0. Start CMD.
1. cd c:\
2. svn co -N svn_url .
        Don't forget the trailing dot. Checkout a directory without any files in it if you don't want to mess up your root dir.
3. mkdir foo
4. date > foo\a.txt
        Hit return a few times to create the file.
5. svn add foo
6. svn diff
7. Boom. Specifically, from the event viewer:

Notes:
If there are no changes to the workspace, "svn diff" doesn't fail:
a) svn revert -R .
b) svn diff
