Symbolic link bug? Untouchable link files?

I have problem with my repos and symbolic links and develop cross
platform Windows/Linux.
I have repos with one sym link to directory created on Linux.
My friend checkout (on Windows) repos and accidentaly touched link file,
modified some other files and tried to commit chages... After those
operations I was unable to fetch changes from repos to my working copy.

After all is not possible to work on working copy (svn up, svn cleanup).

Here are steps to reproduce probably a bug:

On server I created repos:

$ svnadmin create /var/svn/testowy2

(dbd backend, svn 1.1.2)

On 1st client (linux, svn from trunk) I did:

$ svn co svn+ssh://ksi/var/svn/testowy2
$ mkdir a
$ ln -s a link
$ svn add a
$ svn add link
$ svn ci -m"test lin"

On 2nd client (Windows, svn 1.1.4) I did:

$ svn co svn+ssh://ksi/var/svn/testowy2
$ cd testowy2
$ touch testowy2
$ svn ci -m "test win"

and svn commit return error and after it I can't work with my rep.

svn cleanup returns:

svn: In directory ''
svn: Error processing command 'committed' in ''
svn: Error replacing text-base of 'link'
svn: Unsupported special file type ''

And checkout on 2nd clients returns:

C:\tmp>svn co svn+ssh://ksi/var/svn/testowy2 testowy3
A testowy3\a
A testowy3\link
svn: In directory 'testowy3'
svn: Unsupported special file type ''

and svn up on 1st client returns:

svn up
U link
svn: In directory '.'
svn: Unsupported special file type ''


ps. Please help me asap.
