We also need to figure out where this bug crept in.

Somehow, the 'svn:wc:' props and 'svn:entry' props (which are "live"
props normally generated by the RA layer) weren't properly filtered
somewhere, so instead of being routed into an entries file or wcprop
area, they got stored as normal "dead" props in blair's working copy.
Then he unknowingly committed them in r4046. Now whenever someone
checks out or updates that file, the bogus dead props overwrite the
correct live props.

Once we know where the filtering bug crept in, we know how far back to
look for bogus deadprops in our repository.
