… Could you try subscribing to a page history feed in Google Reader and see if in the feed items, you get the contents as the edit summary, or the diff view?
What it should look like (thanks, Bloglines):
Far less interesting, I’m sure you’ll agree.
BTW, if you didn’t know these feeds existed, they are linked under the “toolbox” section of the menu on each article’s history page.
Strange, I get diffs for the Atom feed but only the edit summary for RSS

I have been subscribing to several Wikimedia project pages with RSS in Google Reader for awhile now. It appears that I get edit summary view if the changes are short, but diffs if the changes are long. That’s just an untested hypothesis, though.

RSS is the only way I can keep track of multiwiki page requests (as I’m active in several).
And I do get diffs on google reader

Argh, why, WHY do you taunt us with arbitrary behaviour… :(

Did you find out anything, Brianna? My Google Reader is suddenly acting up as well.

It suddenly started working again. As you said, it’s arbitrary.
