The problem is, that core subversion libraries fills a svn_wc_status_t
and a svn_wc_entry_t and the node kind in those structures is not set. I
think the only way to fix that, is to file an issue on the subversion
core library.

This information is not contained in the svn_wc_status_t and in the
svn_wc_entry_t structures. The only way to fill these members in either
to do the SVNClientInterface.list calls in the library or the extent the
structures in the core library.

The first option would raise the time needed for the other users of the
onServer flag too much. The second way is the way to go.

For both problems I do not have any idea, if this information is
available in RA-Layer. I have to check with dev@subversion.tigris.org.
