i'd say check the issues database and if there isn't one filed about
that, file one. it's certainly something that should work.

It's more or less a waste of time to run two commands where one command is enough. Doesn't SVN update actually do everything SVN status does except printing the result to the console?

'svn update' will tell you when something you've changed has been
affected by the update (i.e. you change a file, then update and it's
been changed in the repository, it will show you that a merge took
place). if you just want to see what you've changed, use 'svn status',
that's what it's there for. we're specifically trying to keep the two
commands separate because determining what you've edited has nothing to
do with updating your source.
