Did you put these files on a filesystem which doesn't support executable
flags, such as VFAT or ISO-9660? This could be a reason. You may also
check the [auto-props] section in ~/.subversion/config.

It's simple: Just delete the Subversion svn:executable property for
affected files. On the command line a
 $ svn propdel svn:executable *.tex *.pdf
should be sufficient.
