Where did you read this? I don't think any of that is true. Subversion does not store permissions. There is no such thing as "svn:properties". The only permission Subversion can store is a file's execute bit; set the "svn:executable" property to an asterisk ("*") to indicate the file should have the execute bit, or delete that property to indicate it should not.
