That's what I found about Unix symlinks and Windows SVN clients:
(http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/svn.advanced.props.html#svn.advanced.props.special.special)

"...
Note: Windows clients don't have symbolic links, and thus ignore any
svn:special files coming from a repository that claim to be symbolic
links. On Windows, the user ends up with an ordinary versioned file in
the working copy."
