Since I wrote asvn I'll be the first to admit it is not the most
intelligent. It makes a few basic assumptions the main one being that
every file/directory in the working copy is under svn control.

asvn is a wrapper that only operates on checkin, checkout, switch and
update for any other svn command like import the wrapper does nothing.
If you are trying to import a project and want to store the symlinks and
devices you need to use the techniques described for an "In place
import" http://subversion.tigris.org/project_faq.html#in-place-import.
svn add your normal files and use "asvn" to do the checkin. during the
checkin phase asvn will scan the working copy for the devices and
symlinks that are not currently listed in its property files. It will
also check file permissions and owner/group properties for each file and

I'm hoping to get some free time in a month or so to revisit asvn and
clean it up a bit as it does have a problem with spaces in filenames
plus with the 1.1 release of svn including support for symlinks it is
not needed in asvn.
