I don't work on Windows, but on *nix and Mac OS X, if you want a file
to get the execute bit after checkout, you should have its
svn:executable property set (to anything). Subversion does not manage
any other file permissions (except maybe the writable bit when using
svn:needs-lock), so the difference between your machine and the other
developer's machine is caused by something other than Subversion.
