This looks fine. If you do this, there's no need to set stuff in the
registry. The two methods are redundant.

Here's the source of your confusion: the auto-props feature *does not*
make properties automatically appear on files when you update and
commit. It *only* affects the behavior of the 'svn add' and 'svn
import' commands. That's it. So if you have a bunch of files already
under version control, enabling auto-props does nothing (or rather, it
only affects the act of *adding* new files to version control). For
files already under version control, you'll have to 'svn propset' each
file accordingly, either manually or using a script of some sort.
