I did not cover that in my test case. See here, it works.

noorul_at_noorul:/tmp/wc/repos1$ ~/projects/subversion/builds/trunk/bin/svn ps 'foo:bar' foobar -R A/B/lambda
property 'foo:bar' set on 'A/B/lambda'
noorul_at_noorul:/tmp/wc/repos1$ ~/projects/subversion/builds/trunk/bin/svn pd foo:bar -R
Attempting to delete nonexistent property 'foo:bar' on '.'
Attempting to delete nonexistent property 'foo:bar' on 'A'
Attempting to delete nonexistent property 'foo:bar' on 'A/B'
property 'foo:bar' deleted from 'A/B/lambda'.

Thanks and Regards
