In 1.8 all properties are automatically inherited. Tortoise SVN shows those as gray so you
know they were inherited. That said, the 1.8 client only acts on specific properties that
were inherited. svn:global-ignores and svn:auto-props. I think there was some talk on the
TSVN list to have a check box to "show inherited". But, not sure if that will happen.
