I thought that would work too but I tried it and it didn't for me
either. I'm using Subversion 1.4.6 on Mac OS X 10.4.11 Intel, with
the working copy on a UFS disk image so as to be case-sensitive.

We just had a long discussion a few months ago about these types of
patterns, but I see now it was about ignore patterns, not about
autoprops definitions. I'm surprised they don't work the same way.

I don't remember if it was about ignore patterns or autoprops
definitions or both, but I recall a prior discussion in which it was
explained that internally Subversion handles some part of this case-
insensitively, thus the second definition overwrites the first? Maybe
I have the specifics wrong but I do recall this being mentioned before.
