Question about commit/udpate inside externals

Hello list,

I have a repository which contains an external to another repository with a fixed revision number.
Something like: "-rxxx svn+ssh://..."

I noticed I can make modifications inside this external and commit the modifications.
At which point the external is actually above its fixed revision number (xxx+1 for example).

"svn status" does not mention this particular state and "svn up" does not bring the external back to its fixed revision number.

What bothers my is that doing a checkout of the repository will get me to a different state but doing "svn status" and "svn up" on my working copy does not alert me of that.
How can I check if my externals are above their fixed revision number?

Maybe it is just a bad idea to edit and commit inside externals?

Regards,
Thomas
