Problems with "svn status" command and NTFS junction points

I just posted this problem to TortoiseSVN mailing list, but then I realized
that this problem may not be related to TortoiseSVN client, so I decided to
try on this list.
I'm using both clients (TortoiseSVN and the svn command line client), and
both of them have similar problem.
The problem I'm having with the svn client is when I try to check the status
of my svn working copy files and directories using the "svn status -u"
command from the linked NTFS junction point directory. The command fails
with the following error: "svn: Working copy 'Build' not locked". (Build is
one of the directories inside of the svn working copy).
If I run this command from the original directory, everything works fine.

The two directories are linked with the windows linkd.exe command:
"linkd 'C:\MySvnLinkDir' 'C:\Path\To\MySvnWokingCopyDir'".

Has anybody else had similar problems, and is anybody using svn client with
NTFS junction points?
