A coworker, who is more creative than I, came up with:
svn co svn://.../baseproj/subdir baseproj/subdir
svn co -N svn://.../baseproj/subdir baseproj

This fulfills the requirements of allowing us to do minimal pulls for regression testing. It would still be nice to have the bug fixed, but the fire is out for the moment.
