Re: Symlink-to-WC bugs

Sounds like this is the same problem that I reported several months ago
in bug #2284. The problem is that when subversion stats a file, if that
file is a symlink to a directory, subversion doesn't look at the
directory bit but rather assumes that it is a symlink to a file. It
gets upset when the .entries file says that it should be a directory but
it sees it as a symlink to a file.
