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.

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

Tortoise SVN 1.4.3
