It wasn't, in fact, but after Michael's response I realize that it wouldn't have
mattered even if it had been set, because we were relying upon that value to be
set prior to any commit of the merged file into the branch.  But it is a good
reminder that, if we do change our operational pattern to commit merges before
we build, we also need to make sure the keywords and auto-prop settings are set
properly on that system.

Yes, this was apparently the crux of the issue.

Thanks for the response!
