Created issue #563 for this:

Other svn clients don't have those properties.

Problem is that pre-1.8 clients do not have the inheritable properties
so the project properties still need to be set on all folders.

The context menu should not even show for those special folders that
don't have a filesystem path.
How did you get the context menu to show for those folders?
