OK, next thing is maybe it reckons your files are binary for some reason.
Try adding the -a (--text) option to your command line.

To make absolutely sure, enter "bash -x" at a command shell, then try the
diff command again: you'll bash print out the fully-expanded version of your
command before it executes it, so if any functions or aliases are making the
problem, they'll show up there.

cygcheck -c diffutils
cygcheck -l diffutils
