Ok - I attached a script to reproduce these then (ran with r29434).

bug 1a,b: svn revert <link> seems to jump through the link.
bug 2: svn st <link> seems to jump through the link.

There are a few open bugs on symbolic links.
All of these looked fixed on trunk to me:
http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=2284
http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=2305
http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=2352
http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=2631
http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=2716

Should I file a bug?

Thanks,

Eric
