I believe that these auto-props will be set only when you add a new file
in the repository. They won't affect existing files, and certainly not
in the context of an export. If the file "foo.dat" has CRLF line endings
in the repository, I think that your only option is to simply convert it
to "LF" line endings locally post export. A utility such as "recode"
will do the trick, but I don't know whether it's available natively for
