The files from externals only show up in the commit dialog if they're
from the same repository. If they show up for you even though they're
*not* from the same repository, then you did something wrong when you
created the repository in the first place: both repositories have the
same UUID - that must not happen!
Do a dump/load cycle on one of the repositories (make sure to pass
--ignore-uuid to svnadmin load).
