vcp files

I'm wondering if anyone has experience using Subversion with large MS C++
project files. We have some project files that are a couple of MB and are
looking to switch from VSS to SVN.

The problem is that the MS C++ IDE rearranges the project file all the time
for no reason, making it very difficult to know if the new version of the
file needs to be commited. Worse yet, merging changes made by someone else
would probably be pretty much impossible.

How do you handle your project files? Do you manage to use the usual SVN
tools to keep track of changes/merges? Or do you have to coordinate changes
made to the project files between developers? This file actually seems to me
to be a candidate for exclusive checkouts, even though it is a text file.

Thanks in advance for any advice and suggestions!
