svn blame miscategorizing a file as binary

I'm having problems with "svn blame" in svn 1.0.4 and didn't see any
relevant bugs in the DB describing this problem, so I've come here...

The problem is that "svn blame" is declaring a file "binary" - and
refusing to produce any output - even when it's really not:

    $ svn st generic-build.xml
    $ svn blame generic-build.xml
    Skipping binary file: 'generic-build.xml'
    $ svn proplist -v generic-build.xml
    Properties on 'generic-build.xml':
      svn:mime-type : text/xml
    $ svn cat generic-build.xml | grep -q '[^[:print:]]' || echo no nonprinting characters found
    no nonprinting characters found

Why does svn blame think this is a binary file??

FYI the file is not locally modified at all in the above example.
