Yuck. I wonder whether the output contains '&#13;\n' or '&#13;\r\n'
(i.e., does the output contain one or two extraneous CR characters?

In any case, I'm defeated. Attached is a patch like the previous one,
except that it also smashes all EOL combinations into '\n'. Feedback is
welcome, especially from Windows users.


Read svn properties in XML rather than text format in test suite.

This makes the routine shorter and more robust to strange property
values and to format changes in the text output format.

* subversion/tests/cmdline/svntest/tree.py
  (get_props): Read svn properties via "svn proplist -v" using the
  "--xml" option.
