You said these differences were always due to keyword expansion
or eol-style. Can you describe in more detail what the related
svn: property settings are, and how file content differs from
what you expect?

It may well be. But we've stopped fixing bugs in the 1.6 working copy
implementation long ago. 1.6 receives fixes only for critical data
corruption issues for which no workaround exists, and security fixes.
Does the issue exist in Subversion 1.7?
