Good eye, it is Microsoft SFU. If SVN won't track how I think the devs have asked for it, we'll have to wait until their code is re-factored to obviate the whole problem.
Thanks much.

How are you running ls on a Windows box? If this is Cygwin, that's
another variable which might alter the permissions on checked-out files.

Also, check your umask settings.
