I suspect that you can't use log-messages which contain the two-byte
sequence CR/LF as used in Windows to terminate lines. The Subversion
libraries want bare LF for multi-line svn: property values. (They've
been requiring it since 1.6.0)

This sounds like a bug in Subversive. Subclipse got this wrong
initially too, but fixed in in r4373 (2009-03-30) on trunk.

I suspect the text file *on* *linux* uses bare LF to terminate lines,
which is acceptable to Subversion 1.6.x.
