Well, not really. The client just committed "bad" data. The repository
faithfully stored it, and is returning it. I wouldn't exactly call that
corruption. If you did, then you'd also have to call out those bad-delta
commits that we've had in the past.

As far as I can tell, this *only* affects propchange-email.pl (as of
revision 4046). There is no other dir/file in HEAD that has entry or wcprops
on it, and there are NO dirs/files in rev 4045 that have the bad data.

Another interesting data point from Ben: rev 4046 was only a propset. Being
a single file, it is also possible that it was done using 'svn propset'
against a URL. This means there could be bugs in commits that are only
propsets, or in the 'svn propset URL' code.

Next question is what to do about propchange-email.pl ? Just edit the sucker
to remove those properties? Or do we dump/edit/load to fix them in the
historical record?
