tortoiseSVN 1.4.5 file repacing bug

Dear developers,

I use TortoiseSVN 1.4.5 Linux client.
Some time ago I experienced the following problem:
- I created file with executable permission and add it to svn. I was
added with 'svn:executable' property
- After some time I decided to replace it with symlink to another
executable, so I made:
   svn delete <file>
   ln -s <another_file> <file>
   svn add <file>
  New file had status 'R' replaces and the following properties:
- After that it became impossible to checkout tree with this file. All
attempt are failed with error:
    svn: Can't change perms of file '<file>': No such file or directory
I suppose this is because svn-client tries to set executable permissions
on <file> which links to <another_file> but the last one is absent

It think this is a bug in file replacing procedure and in right way
sequence of commands 'svn delete' 'svn add' should replace properties too.
