Untested, only based on your data.
I will try this.

The dump of netprops has them listed as floats [0], [1] and [2]. This is why I am a little confused, since Basevelocity is listed as a single vector.

It seems that doing:
Code:
SetEntPropVector(client, Prop_Data, "m_vecVelocity", vecNewVelocity);
Does not work. It seems like the value is enforced per frame, by the server. I get a rubber band effect. Even trying to set the player's velocity to zero, doesn't work for me.

Looks like I have finally got things working as I want, but I cannot stop the players movement. Here is the code I have to stop the player:

PHP Code:
    //reset player velocity
    
decl Float:fVelocity_Current[3];
    
decl Float:fVelocity[3];
    
GetEntPropVector(clientProp_Data"m_vecVelocity"fVelocity_Current);
    
fVelocity[0] = (fVelocity_Current[0] * -1);
    
fVelocity[1] = (fVelocity_Current[1] * -1);
    
fVelocity[2] = (fVelocity_Current[2] * -1);
    
SetEntPropVector(clientProp_Data"m_vecBaseVelocity"fVelocity); 
Presuming that m_vecBaseVelocity adds to m_vecVelocity, I am taking the current velocity and inverting it, so that the value added results in a 0.
Sadly, I cannot see any effect in testing.
I am doing this with a 1 second timer, that runs after the player's velocity is modified.

Hopefully when all this is solved, someone else out there will Google this and make use of it too.

Update:

I was rather tired, so missed an obvious solution... use that teleport function:
PHP Code:
    new Float:fVelocity[3] = {0.00.0, -9001.0};
    
TeleportEntity(clientNULL_VECTORNULL_VECTORfVelocity); 
In order to prevent players dying from fall damage, I am granting a tiny bit of uber on them.
