Bug Reporting: external folder on older revision failed if the target is deleted on head.

Dear Developers,

I have encountered a bug on the external repo. The external repo will
fail if the target is deleted on head even the external is marked with
an older revision which the target was not deleted.

Strangely it fails only on the current argument format (introduced
since subversion version 1.5). The older format works.

Client:
TortoiseSVN 1.6.2.

Server:
svnserve 1.5 running over https with apache mod.

Steps to reproduce:
Add a folder "source" to root of the repository, committed at revision
X.
Delete the "source" from repository.
Add another folder "destination" to the root of the repository.
Add a svn:externals property "-r X ^/source source" to destination
folder.
Add a svn:externals property "source2 -r X ^/source" to destination
folder.
update destination folder.

Expected result:
There are 2 folders, source and source2 inside folder destination and
both of them are copies of the "^/source" on repository.

Actual result:
There is just a folder, source2, inside folder destination. The update
reports errors on external repo of source.

Could you please help me confirm the bug?

Regards,

Janus
