[TSVN] symbolic links - unix to unix via Tortoise

I've already slogged through one issue: filename case problems (same
filename spelling but different case). This was solved with a Samba
setting. Now I have another issue: unix symbolic links are either not
stored into a SVN repository as symbolic links, or somewhere along the
process during checkout, they are not restored properly. Ithink the former
is true.
 
My environment is setup such that the repository and the target are both on
the same linux server. I use Tortoise SVN via a windows client to handle
the administration of SVN.
 
I connect to the server via Samba, but also have SVN setup so that it can be
accessed via apache (https). If I use either a direct file access to the
repository or the Apache access I get the same result: the symbolic link is
stored as a directory and the files it references are stored.
 
The symbolic links are essentiual to the development environment. Without
these, everything is screwed.
 
I'm wanting to use Tortoise and SVN in this environment. Without support
for Unix, I can't do it.
 
Any suggestions out there?
