Non-recursive Directory Commit & Property Diff

A while back (so maybe things are quite different now, but I doubt it as I
didn't notice any discussion about something like this), I was playing
around with a repository and had the following situation:

Directory A contains File B. A has a property change, B has a modification.

I wanted to commit the property change to A, and I was just blndly copying
and pasting the entries from an "svn status" that I wanted to commit, so I
listed the directory name as an argument to commit. I didn't want to commit
the file modification as I knew it was bogus. Then, a little later, I did
an "svn status", and noticed that the file wasn't marked as modified
anymore, so I scrolled up on my terminal a little and noticed that the file
had gotten committed.

Is there some syntax that I'm just not noticing for doing non-recursive
commits on a directory?

On a related note, I found it difficult to mentally keep track of the
changes I was making to directory properties. I usually do an "svn diff"
before I check files into the repository so I can see that only the changes
I really want get to the server, and being unable to do something like a
"propdiff" gets irritating.
