      Description

      When we try to set the svn:auto-prop on a file, we get a helpful error message
      that this prop cannot be set on a file:
      
      1.8.0>svn ps svn:auto-props *.foo=svn:eol-style=native FAQ

      # When we try the same thing via a propedit, the edit is disallowed,
      # but all we see is that no changes were made, with no explanation
      # as to why:
      
      1.8.0>svn propedit svn:auto-props FAQ
      No changes to property 'svn:auto-props' on 'FAQ'
      
      The propedit should explain why the edit was disallowed.
