As I understand it, this is deliberate, and it's up to you to ensure that
every file you commit has valid Mime types set.

To do this automagically in future: locale your SVN config file and add
something like:

*.sln = svn:eol-style=native; svn:mime-type=text/xml
*.vcproj = svn:eol-style=native; svn:mime-type=text/xml

However, since you have already added them, you will need to add the
properties manually before committing: if you are using TortoiseSVN then
right click and SVN->Properties will give you a dialog that displays
existing properties and lets you set new ones. Set svn:eol-style to
"native" and svn:mime-type to "text/xml". Otherwise you can use the command

svn propset svn:mime-type=text/xml filename

etc to achieve the same effect.

HTH, John.
