Updating a folder containing external files results in deleting the files

I am having an issue when updating a folder containing external files.

TEST
+---PRJ_A
| +---branches
| +---tags
| \---trunk
| \---FD1
| \---FD2
| \---FD3
| test.txt
\---PRJ_B
     +---branches
     +---tags
     \---trunk
          \---FD1
               \---FD2
                    \---FD3
                         test.txt

svn:externals is set on PRJ_B\trunk\FD1 as:
^/PRJ_A/trunk/FD1/FD2/FD3/test.txt FD2/FD3/test.txt

When performing an update on the PRJ_B/trunk/FD1/FD2/FD3 folder in a working copy, the test.txt file gets deleted.
The same happens performing an update on PRJ_B/trunk/FD1/FD2.

The issue does not happen performing an update on PRJ_B/trunk/FD1 or PRJ_B/trunk.
test.txt gets updated normally as expected.

I'm guessing there's an issue when updating a child folder when a parent folder contains an svn:externals property.

Any help would be appreciated.
I am using TortoiseSVN 1.7.6 on Windows XP SP3.
The issue does not occur with the 1.6.x series.
