If we change the behaviour so that a rule for a (case-insensitive)

also introduce the concept of disabling auto-props rules; e.g., just
having a

could mean "do nothing with files matching '*.txt' from this point
onwards." I think that would be a quite valuable addition to the
auto-props feature set.
This is a very compelling argument :-)  However, I note that it, too, is
backwards incompatible.

It is. I don't think there's any way we can /not/ make it backwards
incompatible, given the current implementation. Which is why I think we
should just admit that current behaviour is a bug.

Either that, or introduce a new property that behaves sensibly.

Since it is "ini" format a section could be used to unset properties like this:

*.txt = svn:eol-style=native
*.txt = svn:executable

Wouldn't this work?
