Problem is, you can't update a working copy with a file in this state on
any platform, and you can't change/remove the property without having
a working copy.

(See my thread in users on this exact same problem).

The only option I can see is to remotely delete the file and start over.

Supposedly the 1.5 'svn propset' command should be able to take a URL
parameter now, but it complains about having to specify a "base revision",
but the help doesn't explain what that is. (If you pass -r, it complains
you shouldn't use a revision parameter.)
