Would it be too intrusive to use a separate tool like rsync to keep
the Linux-hosted working copy and the Windows-writable one?

Actually, come to think of it, that's really not optimal anyway.

I think that your original idea of using the svn properties
to set things back in order is probably the cleanest idea,
and a script to do it could be useful for other people.

You could even do it in a single commandline
with something like:

$ svn -R propget svn:executable * | sed -nre s/'^(.*) - \*$'/'\1'/p | xargs
echo chmod a+x

There'd be better and cleaner ways (using the proper
svn bindings comes to mind -- heck, even using nicer sed
would improve this).

I hope that's a useful starting point, at least.
