handling of symbolic links

I'm not sure whether this issue is with TortoiseSVN or with the subversion libraries themselves, but when I check out or update symbolic links (marked with the "svn:special"="*" property) with TortoiseSVN I get text files containing "link some/path/here". cygwin subversion does what I consider to be the right thing, which is to create a symbolic link.

Is there any chance that TortoiseSVN could adopt the same behavior? Right now I end up with multiple files with the same name (one has the .lnk extension, created by cygwin svn or manually with ln -s) and of course the "wrong" one is found first by cygwin. And the TortoiseSVN commit and diff dialogs are all cluttered with "file missing" markers because the .lnk file isn't seen.
