Symbolic Link Bug?

From: Todd Simon <tsimon_at_kcp.com>

I am experiencing what I believe to be a bug. I have been using TSVN to version control a number of projects that I largely store on a network drive for 5 years. I recently updated to 1.8.2 Build 24708 - 64 Bit, and since then I seem to be unable to commit changes on the network drive working copy to the repository.

Commits Fail with the following details:
"Commit failed (details follow):
Symbolic links are not supported on this platform
To commit recursively and work around this error,
make sure that all child items of a checked folder
are also checked in the commit dialog.
Otherwise, TortoiseSVN must do a non-recursive commit
which does not allow directory deletion."

This appears to occur after Sending Content steps begin. I have repeated the commit step on a number of sub-directories in one repository and repeatedly on one sub-directory. It always appears to fail after 1 or more Sending content steps, but the file it fails on is random. I have also tried committing the working copy files from a totally separate computer on the network, also updated to the latest TSVN version. Both computers are Windows 7 64bit Enterprise, the network working copy is on an NTFS file structure. I also tested on a separate repo and working copy on the same network architecture and it also fails in the same ways. I have working copies on my local computer and they appear to commit without incident. The strongest evidence I have is I tried to commit one set of files on the network, that failed, then I copied them to the local working copy and they committed without error. Additionally, I have never used Symbolic Links in my working copies and I am the only individual working with the
se working copies. More over, I tried searching for Symbolic links in my working copies and can't find any. Therefore, I believe something on the Network drive interaction is tripping the Symbolic Link error in TSVN erroneously.

Has anyone else experienced this problem? Have any suggestions, questions, or comments?
