Hello Vincent,

I believe the question is: how did the files get from CVS into
Subversion? Your text-base file contains the string

   $Id: lplain.bst,v 4.0 2000/01/31 18:11:53 vlefevre Exp $

which must have been generated by CVS (note the ",v" appended to the

Creating a new file with that string in it, importing into a
Subversion repository, and setting its svn:keywords property has
the desired affect. The file in the working copy contains a
Subversion-style value:

   $Id: alpha 2 2009-08-05 13:28:53Z steve $

and its text-base contains the unexpanded keyword:


So it appears that your file is part of a repository generated
by a CVS-to-Subversion tool. Can you find out which one?
