Adding the entries file to your working copy (or how to break your workingcopy the hard way)

From: Bert Huijben <rhuijben_at_sharpsvn.net>

As expected this doesn't work:

# svn add .svn\entries
svn: '.svn' is not a working copy
svn: Can't open file '.svn\.svn\entries': The system cannot find the path

But I was really surprised when I tried:

# svn add --parents .svn\entries
A D:\WC\.svn
A D:\WC\.svn\entries

(And it even allowed committing!)

This was with Subversion 1.5.5.

Expected behavior:
The working copy library and/or client library should have denied the
addition of the .svn directory (and thereby its children).
