If you merge a patch from the trunk after rev 329187 to a branch made 
before rev 329187 and to which the 329187 commit has not been merged, 
you will get this problem.

Also, if you merge a patch from the trunk _before_ rev 329187 to a 
branch which was made after 329187 (or the 329187 checkin _has_ been 
merged to that branch), you will also get into this situation (but that 
should be a much less frequent problem).

This is because Subversion does not "understand" that the diff is 
because of a property change, and that's a pity. Subversion is, with 
respect to the eol-style property change, as "stupid" as CVS is to 
moving/renaming files. :o(
