Why does SVN DIFF punt?


I have an XML documentation file that generates an SVN DIFF where everything is deleted and re-added for no reason. I've tried combinations of --ignore-properties, -x -w, and -x -b  to no avail.

A local DIFF against the last SVN revision returns a nice simple, small diff. SVN DIFF just punts and deleted everything and adds it again.

I know some folks are concerned about diff history and tracking what actually got changed. Any suggestions?
