Heh, I'll bet I know what's happening. The client "normalizes" the
values of certain svn: properties. For example, one person might set
this:

   svn:eol-style ==> "NATIVE"

And another might set it to:

   svn:eol-style ==> "Native"

And a third might set it to:

   svn:eol-style ==> "native"

Subversion normalizes them all to the third way, I think: "native".
Similar things happen with a few other properties.

Could that be what's going on here? Can you inspect the relevant
revisions of the properties to see?

Thanks,
-Karl
