So here's what we need to do from here:

1. Make sure everyone is running a post r4023 client, so nobody gets
    bitten by issue 1012, accidentally creating bad props.

2. Fix the repository. Gstein used his magick python scripts to scan
    our repository, and only this one file has the bad props. Either
    we remove the bogus props from HEAD, or we do dump/load sorcery
    and attempt to change history.

3. Tell everyone to 'rm -rf hook-scripts; svn up'. It's not enough
    to simply toss the wcprop cache. There's bogus liveprop data
    sitting in the entry itself (the CR is wrong, for example.)
    Easier to rebuild the whole directory.
