Export fails to a directory with symbolic links

Hi there!

Iam pretty sure (and someone from the IRC reproduced), that the svn
export fails, because the destination directorys' path contains a
symbolic link.

On Debian Lenny i did

/usr/bin/svn export svn://localhost/svnrep bla --force

while bla is a symbolic link to a valid directory.

I got this message:

"svn: 'bla' exists and is not a directory"

I did a workaround by adding the directory on level deeper to the path:

/usr/bin/svn export svn://localhost/svnrep/scripts bla/scripts --force

(the symbolic link got traversed)

Greetings Max
