I can confirm this, time to time. I managed to get twice svn to checkout
the symlink first and then there will be this error, but I can't reliably
reproduce this. Thanks again for report.

I used following recipe:


rm -rf wc repo wc2

svnadmin create $(pwd)/repo
svn co file://$(pwd)/repo wc
cd wc
touch file.x
ln -s file.x asymlink.x
svn add asymlink.x
svn ps svn:needs-lock '' asymlink.x
svn ci -m ''
svn add file.x
svn ps svn:needs-lock '' file.x
svn ci -m ''
cd ..
svn co file://$(pwd)/repo wc2

BR, Jani
