That's for the OP to figure out, but I predict that the auto-props code
is responsible for whatever is happening.

No! Trying to retrofit exceptions for indentation would a) terminally
mess up the parser and b) make the files incompatible with 3rd-party
parsers.

FWIW, Adding an anchor mechanism for the auto-props definitions in
~/.subversion/config is no more disruptive than making rules in authz
files case-sensitive (see 1.7 release notes).

P.S.: I instrumented the code and the result pretty much confirms that
whatever is happening is happening in the auto-props parser.

In ~/.subversion/config:

[auto-props]
*.[Yy][Aa][Mm][Ll] = svn:needs-lock=true
 [Dd]ockerfile=svn:keywords=Date[...]

Then, with the instrumented client:

$ /Volumes/svn-test/trunk/subversion/svn/svn add wc/foo.yaml
[auto-props]*.[Yy][Aa][Mm][Ll] = svn:needs-lock=true [Dd]ockerfile=svn:keywords=Date[...]
auto-props for foo.yaml: svn:needs-lock=*
A wc/foo.yaml

The first line comes from libsvn_subr/config_file.c:add_value(), the
second from libsvn_client/add.c:get_auto_props_for_pattern().

In other words, the config parser is working as expected and whatever
the auto-props parser is doing is a mystery to me, but note that
auto-props entries should be delimited with ';'.
