Show log: 'C:\Documents and Settings\...' is not a working copy

I run a website with a friend, and we recently decided to get source control -
so we went for SVN.

Since we need to be able to test our files locally, and still be able to access
other projects we have on our own, we have our copy placed with the
DocumentRoot in Apache. However, I'm getting a little tired of having to go
there everytime I want to update, so I decided to create an NTFS junction point
on my desktop - for those who aren't familiar, a junction point (or reparse
point) is essentially a hard link to a directory. Although a plain shortcut
would have allowed similar functionality, it would have prevented me from
getting the overlay icon on the desktop folder.

This junction point should behave exactly like the actual folder, and for the
most part, it does - updating and commiting is no problem.

However, if I try to show the log from the junction point, I get the message
that "'C:\Documents and Settings\...' is not a working copy". Why does TSVN
generate this error, when it doesn't mind updating and commiting? Why does it
matter at all whether or not it's a working copy, if all I want to do is see
the log? And finally, is there anything I can do to allow BOTH locations to be
recognized as working copies without actually checking the repository out in
two different locations?
