Yes. I replied once already. I'll quote it again:

The answers given already are likely correct ways to remove properties
recursively, but I think there's one fairly major thing that is being
overlooked here.

Auto-props aren't a SUBSTITUTION for having properties set on files,
they're a way to AUTOMATICALLY have properties set on files when they're

If you take the svn:keywords property off of a file, then it won't have
keyword expansion enabled, regardless of what is in your /etc/subversion
configuration file.
