Hi Stefan,

I suppose you don't want me to raise a bug ticket, then? It sounds
like a "won't fix" to me...

But regardless of that, are you saying that if I create the following
folders and commit them to the ^/_all/ folder, and then add the
respective externals to them (instead of to the _all/ folder
directly), it would work?

Create this folder in SVN... | ...and attach this one as an external
^/_all/project1/trunk | ^/project1/trunk
^/_all/groupA/subgroup1/project2/trunk | ^/groupA/subgroup1/project2/trunk
^/_all/project3 | ^/project3

Kind regards,
