Oh, dear. Yes, this is probably an oversight on our part.

There are two things going on here:

When you check out a working copy FOO with -N, and then check out a
subdir SUB into it (i.e., SUB is a subdir of FOO both in the
repository and will be in the working copy), SUB will still not be
linked into FOO as a child entry as it would if you had just done a
regular recursive checkout of FOO.

Independently of that, I think there might be bugs in Subversion's
handling of multi-component checkout targets, for example

   $ svn co http://.../baseproj/subd1 independent_subd1

would work just fine, and

   $ svn co http://.../baseproj/subd1 non_wc_dir/subd1

might also work fine, but your example of

   $ svn co http://.../baseproj/subd1 baseproj/subd1

confuses svn, which thinks that baseproj should already have 'subd1',
but of course it doesn't because of the -N...

Heh. That was a bit stream-of-consciousness.

Anyway, can you file a bug report with your recipe, and link to this
mail thread? I can't promise we'll fix this soon, but we shouldn't
forget about it.
