SVN Copy to NTFS junction denied

TortoiseSVN 1.9.4.27285 on Windows 10 64bit, German language pack.

Working directory D:\Work
Subdirectory D:\Work\sub
File D:\Work\sub\somefile

Move D:\Work\sub to C:\OneDrive\sub
mklink /J "D:\Work\sub" "C:\OneDrive\sub"

everything works fine (add, commit).

Problem:
Right drag D:\Work\sub\somefile to the same directory D:\Work\sub
In context menu choose other..., SVN Copy and rename versioned item here
Choose new name "otherfile"
Error messge: Subversion reported an error: "D:\Work\sub" is not a directory

I assume that TortoiseSVN checks if the destination is a directory before
starting the copy operation and does not recognise the junction as a valid
directory.

Workaround: Copy file directly and the new file to Subversion.
Drawback: File history is cut.

Other ideas?
