svn info /path/to/symlink-to-wc fails

Starting this thread in dev:

This appears to be a reincarnation of

$ svn info /path/to/symlink-to-wc
svn: '/path/to' is not a working copy
svn: Can't open file '/path/to/.svn/entries': No such file or directory

This happens not just with 'info' but also 'ls', 'pg' and perhaps
others but interestingly not 'st'.

I see this in 1.4.2, 1.4.3 and 1.4.6 (the only versions I've checked)

This looks like a bug to me as if the symlink handed to svn is not
under version control (and just pointing to a dir or versioned
object), reporting on the target of the symlink is what I expected.

Shall I re-open 2117 or create a new issue for this?
