[BUG] file external copied as file when creating a branch (subversion 1.6.6)

From: Alexander Kitaev <Alexander.Kitaev_at_svnkit.com>

Hello,

When file external is modified in the working copy, then creating a
branch or tag copies original file to the tag or branch (as well as
svn:externals property). This results in a new directory that can't be
checked out.

Please find reproduction script attached.
