Now I'm worried that r12006 doesn't fix the problem it's supposed to
fix. Consider the following (I'm using a schedule add file because we
don't have items with suitable names in the Subversion repo):
$ svn co https://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/trunk/tools qq
$ touch qq/random-commits.py
$ svn add qq/random-commits.py
$ svn sw https://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/branches/1.1.x/tools/dev qq/dev
svn: 'qq/gnuify-changelog.pl' is not under version control
It's hit my new check on gnuify-changelog.pl and that's good,
previously it would have written a spurious file in qq/.svn/wcprops.
However it didn't stop on random-commits.py because a suitable
versioned item exists, so that file has switched wcprops even though
it didn't get switched:
$ cat qq/.svn/wcprops/random-commits.py.svn-work
That might be harmless for this schedule add file, but if that were a
committed file things would fall over.
