When ran from TortoiseSVN, this is the command line it gets:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\WinMerge\WinMergeU.exe" -e -x -ub -dl 
"TheFile.bak : Working Base, Revision 35975" -dr "TheFile.bak : Working 

If I run svn diff on the command line, here is what I get:

Index: TheFile.bak
Unable to display : file considered as binary.
svn:mime-type = application/octet-stream

I used ProcessMonitor to see who is accessing that file and besides 
svn.exe, nothing is accessing it...
