Subversion doesn't do it automatically unless you tell it to - your
own configuration is what led to this situation. Later in your config
file, put this:

*.jar = svn:keywords=;

This should supersede the *.* configuration.

I would strongly recommend that you not apply any auto-props to ALL
files. That's just asking for trouble.
