What port of GNU Diff are you using?  That is, who or what project
ported it to Windows?

In general, a Windows port of Diff should ignore the CRLF/LF
distinction, unless it was invoked with the --binary command-line
option.  That is because Diff uses text-mode I/O by default, which
strips the CR characters from the CRLF pairs, therefore the files
compare equal.  A ported Diff that doesn't behave like that is IMHO
