Windows SVN does't add svn:excecutable, which causes incorrect permissions for Cygwin Checkout

If a file is added using a Windows build of SVN it does not have
svn:excecutable property added. Therefore, if the file is subsequently
checked out using Cygwin SVN, the executable permission is not applied
to the file on creation of the working copy.

Workaround:
1) Set the svn:executable property manually
2) Manually set the file permission in the working copy if necessary

Suggested fix to Windows client:
1) svn:executable should be added automatically according to the same
rules the cygwin client uses
2) Checkout behavior with respect to this should remain as it is

Note: where the permissions are missing from dll files, this can cause
"strange" bugs, instead of straightforward "permission denied" errors

Versions:
Tortoise SVN 1.4.3
Cygwin SVN 1.4.3 (built from source)
