This is by design:
the project properties are read from bottom-to-top. Not top-to-bottom.
If you right-click on the trunk folder and choose commit, the properties
from that folder are used. Only if you commit from a folder below, those
properties are used and if not present, the properties from parent
folders are used instead.

remember: these are project properties, not folder properties. They're
meant to apply to the whole project, not some subfolder.
