[BZ#778467] Same diff against the subversion repository is much slower compared to diff between regular files
Submitted by Yuri
I am in the subversion directory. File 'file.txt' has about 16,000 lines, and differs in about 150 lines with the repository. Command 'meld file.txt' is very slow.
However, when I have the same base version of 'file.txt' in a file 'file.txt.base', this command is much faster: 'meld file.txt.base file.txt'.
This makes me think that it's not the meld comparison that is that slow. It is something in the way how it compares files to the versions in the repository that is slow.
This probably can be fixed.
