Have you tried the "-N [--non-recursive]" switch for svn checkout? This gives you only the main directory and its entries, so the checkout should be fairly small (unless you have thousands of files in the main directory). Then you can set the property and commit. However, this won't be of any help if you want to set the property recursively...

As far as I know, this is a server limitation.
