If there is a problem it would like within the client adapter you are
using. Try running svn up from the command line. If that does not work,
then most likely you are doing something that isn't supported.

I can tell you that the svn:externals property has to point at a path
relative to the property location and a URL. A file system path cannot be
entered in either part of the property.
