Hi Scott,

thanks for the report! I can reproduce the problem with attached test
script. (The script uses my local bin/svn paths of built Subversion
versions, so I also attached a screenshot output.)

I am "moving" this discussion to the dev@ list, please reply there.

Note that the test upgrades the external dir XB, but fails to upgrade the
nested external dir XB/XC:

Fetching external item into 'XB/XC'
Updated external to revision 1.
+ svn upgrade
Upgraded '.'
Upgraded 'B'
Upgraded 'C'
Upgraded 'XB'
Upgraded 'B/XC'

And note that a .svn dir remains in XB/XC (seen in the final 'ls')

I'll see if I can find a solution.
