I was afraid that would be the answer.
I think it would be beneficial to be able to do so though - or perhaps just be able to specify which files NOT to commit:
$ svn commit -someFile.cpp
$ svn commit --skip-files someFile.cpp someOtherFile.cpp

While it's okay it got committed, I would rather it not have. I'm more curious with this for future commits where I may have files that I really don't want committed yet. Sadly, I'm stuck with SVN 1.4 at the moment (due to server OS limitations).
You simply need to commit the file/folder on which the properties have
changed, in the same manner as specifying individual files to commit.
However, you cannot differentiate between committing properties and
commit file changes.
