I just ran into the same problem. Reading through the code
(subversion/libsvn_subr/opt.c) it seems like the `@' behavior is
hard-wired, with no mechanism to escape a real one which is part of
the file name. My first reaction was to re-compile my own hacked
version that uses a more rare character like `>', but then I realized
that it only checks for the last one, so a solution that works with
the code as is isfor you to use

  svn proplist da_DK@euro@BASE
