Infinite loop in svn

Hi Folks,

I managed to stumble upon an infinite loop in "svn st" and "svn up" and
I believe it's a bug.

It can be reproduced with either SVN 0.34 or a fresh build of 0.36 on a
Win2K client. Our Server is still running 0.32.1 (we're waiting for 1.0
to make the next step), but the linux 0.32.1 client behaves just the
same (tried it a few seconds ago). The messages are copy&pasted from my
windows box.

Steps to reproduce:
- inside a working copy create a blank directory named "test"
- set the "svn:externals" property on the WC to "test
http://some.repository/location"
- type "svn st", lean back and watch the infinite loop go by :-)

--- SNIP ---
D:\xxx\trunk>svn st
X test
  M .

Performing status on external item at test
X test

Performing status on external item at test
X test

...Repeat as often as you like...

Performing status on external item at test
X test

Performing status on external item at test
svn: The operation was interrupted
svn: caught SIGINT
--- SNIP ---

"svn st -N" behaves correctly

checkin doesn't fix the problem

Now it's getting even funnier:

--- SNIP ---
D:\xx\trunk>svn up

Fetching external item into 'test'
svn: 'test' is not a working copy
--- SNIP ---

OK, svn is right, so we get rid of 'test'

--- SNIP ---
D:\xx\trunk>rmdir test
D:\xx\trunk>svn up

Fetching external item into 'test'
A test\SVN-Test.txt
  U test

Fetching external item into 'test\test'
A test\test\SVN-Test.txt
  U test\test

Fetching external item into 'test\test\test'
A test\test\test\SVN-Test.txt
  U test\test\test

Fetching external item into 'test\test\test\test'
A test\test\test\test\SVN-Test.txt
  U test\test\test\test

Fetching external item into 'test\test\test\test\test'
^C
D:\xx\trunk>
--- SNIP ---

What do you make of this?

Cheers
-Lübbe
