If he is using TortoiseSVN (mentioned earlier), the property should show
up properly.

I'd test the following tonight, but am about to wrap up and head out for
dinner with the wife, so I leave it to you...

After checking out the file (after the initial import) - what is the
status of that property?? If it needs to be reset, do so and then
commit again. Perform an update or do a checkout on another machine or
to another directory. See what happens.

Maybe there is something wrong with setting the property on the file
prior to the import. Which actually kind of makes sense. When you do
an import, the file is not part of the repository, therefore there is no
property to set on that file. So you import the files (revision 1) and
then set your properties (revision 2 with commit).

Something to think about...
