I know this post is OLD, but I just ran into this issue TODAY. For those interested, here are my printouts:

svn add CSVFormat.java
svn: E200009: File 'CSVFormat.java' has binary mime type property

Hmm, maybe I added a property without realizing...

svn proplist --verbose CSVFormat.java
svn: warning: W200005: 'CSVFormat.java' is not under version control
svn: E200009: Could not display properties of all targets because some targets are not versioned
svn: E200009: Illegal target for the requested operation

So I finally noticed (thanks to Notepad++) the file was encoded in UCS-2 Little Endian. I changed to ANSI and was able to add to svn
