Scott,

Your algorithmic description of "keeping the branch in sync with the
trunk" sounds spot-on. It's exactly the algorithm we're following as
we develop the new locking feature on a branch. And I've even
documented it in the book last weekend:

    http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.1/ch04s04.html#svn-ch-4-sect-4.4

AFAIK, adding eol-style properties as part of a merge shouldn't create
any problems. It's no different than running 'svn propset' by hand on
your working copy.

In any case, the problem is that your description is purely anecdotal.
Unless you can show us a transcript of the exact commands and results,
there's not much we can do to help.
