Problems adding and committing linkd-ed folders

Not sure if this is a bug: perhaps I am "over-using" Tortoise, but
who knows.

I need something like the real links that Linux provides, but on
Windows machines: I want to have a separate folder under my
tree, and access that folder as a sub-folder of that tree.

In ancient times (MS-DOS) I would do something like this

mkdir C:\My\Project\AccessPoint
join D:\Separate\Folder C:\My\Project\AccessPoint

And then, dir C:\My\Project\AccessPoint (for instance) shows
the contents of D:\Separate\Folder

join no longer exists in Windows, so I tried linkd.exe (Provided
by MS in some of their SDKs), and it did work the same as join

Now, I can checkout a working copy over C:\My\Project\, and I
can do:

svn add C:\My\Project\AccessPoint
svn commit C:\My\Project\AccessPoint

and it does work!: it commits D:\Separate\Folder as if it were
under C:\My\Project\AccessPoint.

But if I perform the same operations with TortoiseSVN, I get an
error. For instance, for commit (add behaves the same):

Command Commit
Error Commit failed (details follow):
Error Entry 'C:\My\Project\AccessPoint' has unexpectedly
changed special status

I'm using svn 1.5.5 and TortoiseSVN 1.5.7. I have not updated
to newer versions (I know I should have) but I checked the lists
of fixed bugs for the newer versiones and couldn't find anything
related to this.

Thanks for reading and thanks for Tortoise!
