Bug: Windows(Vista) mounted NTFS partition not usuable (not regocnized as directory)

On Windows(Vista) it is possible to mount a partition (partition on the
local / build-in drive) as a folder, instead of assigning it a drive letter.

In my setup I partioned the buil-in harddisk, making 2 partitions:
partition 1 has the drive-letter C:
partition 2 is mounted as C:\data (C:\data has to be created as empty
folder first, then the partition can be mounted)

If I try to checkout (new checkout) of a repository into C:\data I get:
- A warning which is correct:
   the folder is not empty (because there are some system folders, such
as volume-info and recycle bin).
   I confirm that I still want to continue and this does work
- An error (which I believe to be a bug)
    C:\data' already exists and is not a directory

Similar if I copy (including hidden .svn folders) an existing checked
out repository into C:\data some svn function (such as update or log) do
no longer work (they still work on individual sub directories).

Best Regards
Martin
