Bingo. "Somewhere" was the operative word. The Collabnet config file was being read from my roaming profile instead of from my windows home dir. The roaming copy of config had "* = svn:eol-style=LF", and that auto-prop seems to have been causing the breakage. ("global-ignores = *.* *" is a great way to narrow down what config file is being read.)

And the reason why 'svn add' was failing on different files is because 'svn add' walks the directory tree in a different order each time.

Thanks for the help! Now I must find a wall to quietly beat my head against.
