Problem (bug) around symbolically linked (Windows 7) and junctioned (Windows XP) directories

Suppose I have an SVN working copy located at E:\SVN\Work. I now create a

    * on Windows XP 32 bit a junction (aka reparse point)
    * on Windows 7 64 bit a symbolic link (which of course is just a
      slightly different kind of reparse point)

to C:\...\Desktop\MyStuff\SVNWorkingCopy (software used to do this in
both cases is NTFSLink, but there are others that could be used).

The resulting directory properly shows the Tortoise icon overlays and
everything /inside /the directory works fine. However all Tortoise
operations (e.g., commit or update) on the link itself fail and have to
be performed on the link target.

Obviously not a show stopper, but annoying.
