I think you mean that both these conditions must be present?

When you say "local repository" you mean "working copy". You need to
use the correct terms to avoid causing confusion ;-)

Can you reproduce the problem using the svn command line client? If
so, you should report this on the subversion users mailing list.
Producing a batch file which reproduces the problem will definitely
help to get noticed there.
