Yes, I did ask about svn on the command line, which is where I am having
the problem. I also asked about Tortise SVN beacuse Tortise does not
have the problem of not setting the executable bits with an identical
configuration when updating from the same repositories; ie. it doesn't
require any special configuration to set executable bits on the
mentioned file types. And i know that Tortise is not a Cygwin program
and I don't like using it, but it doesn't have this problem, so I asked
