There's a difference in how TSVN handles externals depending on where
they point to. If the externals point to the same repository, then
they will be shown like all other files in your working copy. But
don't worry: you can then commit them in the same step as you commit
your other changes. It just doesn't work if the externals are from a
different repository.
Maybe that's the reason? Are your externals located in the same
repository (just a different path) as the rest of your working copy?

Hmm - not committed. That shouldn't happen.
Can you tell me the URL of your wc and the URL of the externals (where
they point to)?
