That can't be the reason, because I have another XML file that is also
"text/xml" and svn blame works fine on it.

Moreover, "svn diff" works fine with "text/xml" files... why shouldn't
"svn blame"? At best, there is an inconsistency.

I thought the "text" part was all svn looked at anyway.

Note that we use "text/xml" rather than "xml/blah" specifically so svn
will treat these files as text.
