Recursive Setting of Id Keyword dies prematurely

I've got a working copy set up in the usual fashion:















And I'm wanting to turn on the "Id" keyword on all pascal files (*.pas).


This would seem to be easy:

- go to the /wc directory

- use svn propset with the recursive option



eg. svn -R propset svn:keywords Id *.pas


Unfortunately this seems to stop whenever it finds a folder without any
.pas files (eg Proj1 which contains no files, just the /Trunk, /Tags &
/Branches directories).


The --force option doesn't help either.


The help on propset seems to hint at this but only after you've had it
fail does the message make sense:


"The svn:Keywords ... and a recursive attempt will set the

property only on the file children of the directory"


Is there any straightforward way (on a WinXP system) of setting "id"
property on all *.pas files using just svn commands, or is it necessary
to use a multistage process using -F to pipe the file list in, or
alternatively, use cygwin & find ... -exec svn {} ?
