The existing .svg files have the property svn:mime-type=image/svg+xml set,
but *not* the svn:eol-style property.

BTW image/svg+xml is the recomended Mime type for SVG's, but since they
don't display in a web browser correctly when served from SVN (probably some
SVN pluggin error?), we might actually be better off with text/xml as the
mime type :-(

Anyhow stop trying to set the eol-style and try again.
