WebDav Autoversioning Questions/Problems

While playing around with the webdav autoversioning feature, I noticed
some effects that might be bugs, problems or known features, I don't
know. Maybe you can enlighten me.

I have a simple svn setup on windows XP on a apache 2.0.54 server,
with SVNAutoversioning on. What happens to me is:

* When creating a word document (MS Word 2000) using the integrated
client (File --> save as ... --> http://path/to/repos/test.doc) the
file is saved without problems. But the file is not marked as binary
as it would have when adding with the command line client.

* When getting a text file via WebDav, no keyword expansion or CRLF
conversion is done. That means that a text file with svn:eol-style =
native gets unix line endings on windows.

* When editing that text file on windows it might get a mixture of LF
and CRLF endings. What happens to the line endings when I put it back
into the repos using WebDav? Does it get corrupt or is the "damage"
repaired on the next checkout?

Slightly off-topic: Does anyone know if a command line exists to start
ms word as a subversion diff viewer for word files, something like
msword /compare file1.doc file2.doc? Word has a file compare built-in,
but can it be triggerd from command line?
