Re: Symbolic link bug? Untouchable link files?

I wasn't aware that svn even supported symlinks ( from the repository )
on windows, but if it does, I'll bet that this is the same bug that I
reported about a month ago. Subversion has a bug in the way that it is
calling apr_stat which causes it to bork on symlinks to directories.
The bug ticket can be found here:
