A prop change alone doesn't trigger the file to be re-expanded. Whether that is
a bug is up for discussion. See also the closely related:


The reason (AFAIK) it works this way is that the _file_ hasn't changed, only the
property (which is saved in the .svn files somewhere). I'm mucking about with
keywords, so if I figure out where that code is, I'll take a look at it.
