I could have sworn that was fixed (I'll have to check out the bug
database for that one). Maybe I fixed that as part of my unapplied
keyword patch, which is why I remember it.

Your solution isn't sophisicated enough. All keywords are normally
stored in the repository as "$Keyword$" anyways. The problem is that
the WC has an expanded version and the code to decide what to commit has
to unexpand it before committing. The problem is that the colon is not
stripped out before storing it into repository (which is just a
degenerate case of what we are talking about with CVS keywords).
