Hi all,

I found that symbolic link handling for most of the svn commands are
buggy. Commands include blame, log, ls, cat, cleanup, revert, propget,
proplist, propset, All fails if invoked on a symbolic working copy root
directory. Here is the reproducing script

svnadmin create repos
svn co file:///`pwd`/repos `pwd`/wc
ln -s `pwd`/wc `pwd`/wc_sym
svn blame `pwd`/wc_sym

Except for cleanup and revert commands every other commands fails with
error message
subversion/libsvn_wc/lock.c:377: (apr_err=155007)
svn: '/parent/path' is not a working copy

for revert error message is
subversion/clients/cmdline/revert-cmd.c:60: (apr_err=155005)
svn: Try 'svn revert --recursive' instead?
subversion/libsvn_wc/lock.c:745: (apr_err=155005)
svn: Directory '/tmp/.svn' containing working copy admin area is missing

for cleanup its
subversion/libsvn_wc/log.c:2254: (apr_err=155007)
svn: '/tmp/wc_2305_s' is not a working copy directory
