As far as Subversion is concerned, those properties *are* part of the
content. Subversion doesn't understand semantics, it only understands
that something inside the file changed.

Why do you have a process which creates/updates PDFs with no material
change in the first place? Fix that, and Subversion won't pick the
files up as changed.
