I just want to mention that I'm facing a similar issue with the
Subversion unit tests. They are failing because the "svn:executable"
property is being added when it's not expected. This happens
automatically when a file is executable and added to Subversion, so it
seems files created by the test suite are executable with 1.7.8 but not
with 1.7.7.

Unfortunately, this is an equally complex system for reproducing the
problem, but I will try to narrow it down to a simple test case.

Like Angelo, I'm using Windows XP Pro SP3.
