This is expected. The value of svn:externals simply causes more
checkouts to run, exactly as the property lists them... no special
extra voodoo.

Thus if the external property lists a URL with no arguments, you'll
always get the HEAD revision of the subproject. If you want to peg
the subproject down, put a '-r' in the externals value, or checkout a
tag URL.
