Icon overlays are mangled inside junction directories

This looks like a bug. Is TortoiseSVN supposed to work with junctions?
Procedure to reproduce:
1. Checkout a Subversion project into a directory (I'll call it
2. Create an empty directory (I'll call it "junction")
3. Make the directory "junction" a junction to the directory "testWC"
   (use NTFSLink or equivalent)
4. Go into a sub-directory of the junction and use TortoiseSVN to rename
a file.
5. Look at the icon overlay for the file that was renamed.
6. Look at the icon overlay for the .svn directory
Expected results:
  The icon on the renamed file should be a blue plus sign (+) and there
  should be no icon overlay on the .svn directory.
Actual Results:
  The icon overlays in both cases is the checkmark on the green
Background on junctions:
A junction (or "reparse point") in Windows is similar to a link on Unix.
More Information on junctions:
Links to applications that create junctions:
  Info and Source code for the MakeLink command line application
  Link Magic GUI app
  Windows Resource Kit Tools (including linkd.exe)
  Yet another command line tool with source:
