svn:externals - construction of cyclic references is not prevented by TortoiseSVN

Hi,

today we have edited our svn repository and accidentally added a self-reference, i.e. a reference established by means of svn:externals.
It would be helpful, if self references would be rejected by SVNTortoise at the time of creation, since the retrieval of such cyclic repositories may cause some serious problems.
We had some luck, the only problem was to get rid of file paths with more that 255 characters which required some extra effort.
Although this problem principally relies on the lack of preventing this property setting in svn, maybe it would be worth to reject such mistakes with some high level description on the client side.

Regards
Bob
