Binary file checkin problem

I know, checking in binary files can be a crap shoot, but didn't think it
would be this easy to actually have it happen.

Take the following example:

svn proplist -v libOrbitPlugin.2.0g.so
Properties on 'libOrbitPlugin.2.0g.so':
  svn:executable :
  svn:mime-type : application/octet-stream
  svn:keywords : Id LastChangedDate LastChangedRevision LastChangedBy
HeadURL

The working copy is now 3 bytes smaller than the original and fails when
it is used: Format error: shdr table truncated

Is there a cure that can fix this checked in file and to keep it from
affecting all binary files? Doesn't SVN consider .so files as being
binary?
