[TxMt] Coloured diff display?

I get different behavior depending on how I run the diff command.

If I do an svn stat and then press the diff button next to a file, then I
get a file/window with some random name and a .txt extension.  This does not
show up formatted as a diff file but rather shows up as restructured text,
which is my usual setting for .txt files.

But if I do a diff on a single file by choosing diff from the subversion
menu then the diff shows up in an untitled window and is colored

It seems like coming up with some standard extension to use for these
temporary diff files would be a reasonable way to get consistent behavior...
