svn merge failure with added executable files?

I'm having trouble merging when files are added that have the
executable bit set. Using 0.26, I get the following message:

------
svn: Can't find an entry
svn: Can't merge props into 'missing':it's not under revision control.
------

We were able to work around it by adding the file to the branch
manually by:

  touch file
  svn add file

I think it can be reproduced by making a simple repository with a
branch. Add an executable file to the trunk. Then attempt to merge
this change into the branch.

Is this a known problem? Will it be fixed in an upcoming version?

Thanks,
Josh Pieper
