are properties with leading spaces valid in svn repo files ? PROPFIND pf...: 207 Multi-Status

I have identified a problem in cvs2svn converter, when i have spaces in my
autoproperties svn config file
e.g. after = or ;. I think this is a bug in cvs2svn and we are currently
discussing this on

However the question is also for svn: are properties with leading spaces
valid in svn repos file ?

If I use the autoproperties config file which contains spaces as described
above, then the
converted archive has problems when diffing files.
I get the anwser: PROPFIND of '/svn/..../!svn/bc/<revnumer>': 207
Mutil-Status (URL of server)

However i get this answer ONLY if i access via http(s),
When i use a file:// URL to access the repo, i get the diff and svn has no
problem with the properties.

- are properties with leading spaces _valid) in svn repo files ?
(it is a bad idea, but cvs2svn dumps them into the repo files)

- why does the error happen only with networkaccess and not with file access
different handling of properties ? (maybe a bug ?)
