Looks like your changed files were from the 9/22 revision of the
linear package files.  I suspect that the props change may be the
problem.  I am not an svn expert, maybe someone else knows more. 
But I would try this:

0) Start with clean checkout
1) do your untarring to overwrite the files with changed versions
2) create a patch using svn diff > temp.patch
3) revert or do a new clean checkout
4) apply the patch you made in 2
