Do you add the property on "new_folder"?
Or is "new_folder" the target of the external? If the latter: do not
create the folder - the external property will create it itself.

You have to get a more detailed recipe on how to reproduce this, and
then report it on the subversion mailing list: handling of externals
during update/commit/... is done by the svn library, not TSVN itself.
