I think svn:merge-info applies to both files and folders, and there are also
user-defined properties which this might apply to.

Can I summarize the rules then as follows?:

 1. If the property applies to both files and folders and a folder is
selected, then the "Apply property recursively" checkbox will be active and
unselected by default.
 2. If the property applies to files only and the dialog is invoked from a
folder, then the "Apply property recursively" checkbox will be selected but
NOT active, and the property will be applied recursively to all files that
are children of the folder.
 3. If the property applies to folders only and the dialog is invoked from a
folder, then the "Apply property recursively" checkbox will be active but
unselected by default. In the checkbox is selected, then the property will
be applied recursively to all folders that are children of that folder.
 4. If a file is selected, the "Apply property recursively" checkbox will be
unselected and NOT active.

(1) - (3) seem to work correctly with the latest build. (4) is not the
behavior I see with the latest build.

Some clarification in the docs might be helpful, but with these fixes to the
behavior of the "Apply property recursively" checkbox, I think it will be
intuitive enough that it won't need too much explanation.
