Using windows junctions (reparse points)

For a very long time I'm using windows junctions in my development
environment. The reason for that is that when I'm switching from one branch
to another, I have to set up/configure a whole bunch of things (IIS for
instance) in order to work with the current branch. Of course creating a
junction that links between a constant folder (that is always used as a
working folder by my environment) and a specific folder to the required
branch is much more convenient.
The problem is that after upgrading to TortoiseSVN 1.6.2 I can't really work
with it in a fully transparent way. For instance trying to update it totally
skips it. Maybe there is also something else that I'm not aware of.
I'm guessing that skipping the junctions is some kind of feature (although I
couldn't find any information about it), but if so I'd be glad if it could
be at least configurable one so I'll be able to shut it off if I'd like to.

Thank you,
