They are in the same repository.

Nope, I can't.

A collegue of mine that originally stumbled accross this problem
told me that it is even worse; even "ordinary" externals as sub-
folders will be ignored (all within the same repository):

C:\temp\x>svn propget svn:externals p2
sub file:///C:/temp/t/p1/branches

C:\temp\x>svn st p1
X p2\sub

Performing status on external item at 'p2\sub'
M p2\sub\br.txt

C:\temp\x>svn ci p2 -m "this will not succeed"

Mindreading works .. cool ;)

Thanks for that hint. It seems to work.

I see your point. But since your proposed workaround would be
acceptable for the users in my company, it would be very nice
to have an additional checkbox that deliberately forces the
non-recursive commit.
