status command doesn't report up-to-date on externals for fix revision number

SVN version: 1.8.8 - downloaded from CollabNet
                        (svn, version 1.8.8 (r1568071) compiled Feb 17
2014, 23:34:25 on x86_64/x86-microsoft-windows5.1.2600)
OS: Windows7 64 bit

Status command report a newer revision exist on server when working copy is
up-to-date for externals and when property is defined with a fix revision
For externals, the comparison is done against wrong revision number. It
seems it is always the same revision number.
It is the revision when property (svn:externals) was set for the first
time. Any update of svn:externals property value is ignored.

I have attached a windows test case (file extension .bat was removed
because gmail blocks the sending of the email)

In the archive mailing list, I found a related topic about a similar case.
I think the issue was partially fixed in 1.8 subversion release.

What do you think ?

Do you think I can open an issue in the bug tracking database ?

I have this behavior for command line and also with latest subversive and
subclipse Eclipse pluggin (synchronize view).
For eclipse plugins, I have a dialog box that ask me to merge incoming
changes from server to my working copy for update.
That have no effect on working copy because it was already up-to-date.

Best regards
Jean-Christophe Gillet
