Description Daniel Blaukopf 2007-12-31 17:03:27 UTC
When Cygwin's svn.exe (1.4.5 r25188) is the first svn.exe in the PATH, NetBeans does not display diffs correctly. This
manifests itself in the following ways:

1. Files show a vertical green bar in the editor along the whole length of the file, no matter how much of the file has
been changed.
2. A diff on the file in NetBeans claims that all the content of the file is new. It makes no difference whether the
internal or external diff utility is used.
3. The file .svn/text-base/*.netbeans-base for edited files is always empty

Installing subversion from and putting it first in the PATH resolved
the problem.

An "svn diff" using cygwin's command-line svn.exe gives the expected results, so it looks like this could be a problem
in how NetBeans parses the output of svn.exe.

Similar but not identical problems have been noted
