I was actually wondering when you mentioned it if .svn folders weren't expected to be in "external" working copies. I'm just so used to how Subversion has worked in the past. I expect any sub-tree of my working copy to function as a working copy even if it was moved elsewhere. While it shouldn't be a problem to come around to the new way, I though that externals might somehow be an exception - as if they were an independent checkout.
Btw, I haven't had a chance to go back to 1.6 to test - is the issue with svn:externals referencing a file fixed? It used to add the file as both an external and a regular file so it was conflicting with itself.
