Hello all,

Im a happy and content svn-user since a few years; thanks to all the effort
creating such a useful tool; especially the webdav/ssl feature is most
useful behind a firewall o;) I'm mailing the first time, and I want to
focus your attention to a behaviour of svn I consider a bug (or at least a
feature I cant think of an useful application). If you set the svn:keywords
= Id property to this file and check it in, svn changes it as you can see
from the md5sum although its explicitely declared to be mime-type =

Versions of svn/apache:
svn help:
Subversion command-line client, version 1.3.2.
apache error.log:
[Wed Aug 29 23:23:36 2007] [notice] Apache/2.0.55 (Ubuntu) DAV/2 SVN/1.3.2
mod_ssl/2.0.55 OpenSSL/0.9.8b configured -- resuming normal operations

I looked up the svn issue tracker for keywords: 'keyword' and 'binary' and
didnt find any similar issues.
I want to apologise the length of the attached file but I tried to 'gcut' it
down but then the bug disappears.

Thanks in advance, in the hope to make a good tool a very little bit better
