svn:external warning when doing commit

Hi sorry to bother the list,
I'm not sure if this is a bug or whether I've just misunderstood the
meaning of the warning.

Setup :
Mixed development environment Linux/Windows XP.
For the purpose of this report (ie how to recreate the issue) there are
two machines.
Machine #1 running XP and latest Tortoise.
Machine #2 running Linux, SVN server and Samba server.

On machine 2 (Linux) using command line tools :
Check out the repository to empty directory.
Go in and create an arbitrary new directory (mkdir)
Create a file in that directory (names and extensions don't seem to
affect the issue).
svn add newdir
The new directory (and recursively the file) get added.

On machine 1
svn commit using tortoise.

The commit dialog appears but you get a warning yellow triangle with !
inside at the bottom right in the dialog.
Hover the mouse over it and you get the following warning text :

"There are changes inside one or more directories which you have
included with svn:externals.
Those files are *not* listed for commit.You need to commit to those
files separately"

On the list of files to be commited are the directory and the file just

The reason I'm worried about it is that I once had the very same error
due to a corrupted working copy and on that occasion not all files were
commited properly.

Finally, the interesting thing is that if I do exactly the same thing on
a local drive (C:) on machine 1 (the XP machine) then you don't get the
warning triangle so I don't think it's related to the environment
(unless the SVN server is corrupt?)

Can anyone else reproduce this?

Regards, Simon.
