Looking at the code, I can't see an obvious reason, but I'm 
experiencing it on multiple machines: "darcs whatsnew --summary" gives 
no output for a changed binary file.

> darcs -v

What is the patch name? Added binary file.
Do you want to add a long comment? [yn] n
There is no test.
Finished recording patch 'Added binary file.'

> darcs diff

Binary files bug-old/binaryfile and bug-new/binaryfile differ
> darcs whatsnew
binary ./binaryfile
> darcs whatsnew --summary
