[Subclipse-users] mixed with eol-style in svn: properties under Windows breaks svn(sync) 1.6

I just want to alert you to this thread:

particularly, this message:

In short:

I think I've discovered a tendency for Subclipse (1.4.7 and 1.6.x) to
sprinkle carriage returns (^M) into textual svn: properties (e.g.
svn:log, svn:ignore. This is problem because Subversion 1.6.x is
stricter about EOL-style purity in the content of its textual
properties than previously.

For example, svnsync 1.6 will refuse to sync a repository in which a
log comment contains a ^M character. It is my understanding from the
linked thread that subversion 1.6 will also refuse such commits.

The logical consequence of this should be an inability to commit
anything with a log comment of more than one line from a Windows
client running Subclipse (in our particular case on Rational
Application Developer 7.5.1) to a Subversion server running 1.6. Has
anyone else observed this?
