Setting eol-style in client config before initial import didn't work

         Hello,

         In my $HOME/.subversion/config file I have the following
properties set, with auto-props
         turned on:

        * = svn:keywords=Id
       * = svn:eol-style=native

I created a new repository and imported the tree to the trunk, with
those settings already in place in the config file. This morning, I
wanted to checked the properties so I selected the top-level
Makefile. I ran 'svn proplist Makefile'.

It listed the keyword property, but not the eol-style property. So,
I manually set the eol-style property on Makefile, then did 'svn
proplist Makefile' again. This time, it listed both properties. I
checked another source code file of a different type, in a different
directory, and the same is true with that one too.

Why wasn't the eol-style property set if the properties were defined
in my local config file before the import?

Is this property not set on the initial import? Is a hook script
*required* to make it work? I searched the archives and found
comments saying "You can use a hook script....", but nothing that
says that additional step is required.

Currently this is not a show-stopper because development will most
likely not be done in a cross-platform environment. However, we'd
like to have the property set on the files in case the need ever arises.

Thanks
Jen
