If it comes to that, sure. But Alex has put a lot of effort into getting
symlinks working correctly with JavaSVN. I think the issue is just that
there are a lot of different corner cases to deal with. So it would
probably help if you could just provide as much detail as possible about
your setup so that he can test it. From what you said before, I think it
was this:

You have a symlink to a folder inside a working copy, and that symlink is
pointing to another folder that is also a valid working copy.

Based on the Issue you cited, it sounds like the command line, when svn
status is run, would just completely ignore the symlink. It sounds like
JavaSVN does not.

Feel free to re-explain in your own words.
