It's not a bug, it's more like "don't do that." :-)

If 'svn update' needs to change a working file, but the file is set to
read-only, what do you expect? Of course the update will be
interrupted. The update is obstructed. Fix the working-file's
permission, run 'svn cleanup' so the working copy can finish processing
the interrupted work, then 'svn update' again to finish the update.
