Thanks for posting here first, it's much better than filing a bug at
this point.

What version of Subversion are you running on the client side? I saw
Mike Pilato's response, in which he tried to do what you do, but
couldn't reproduce the problem.

Can you show us 'ls -l' and 'ls -ld' of all the relevant directories,
so we understand *exactly* how your symlinks are laid out? Then show
us a literal transcript of what Subversion commands you run, and what
it asks you when you think it shouldn't ask anything.
