RE: Problems with "svn status" command and NTFS junction points

I'd like to also request that this issue be added to the issue tracker (
I searched it and did not find an entry for this issue ). I can add
that I ran into the problem by checking out a working directory to
c:\wd, then creating a junction c:\junction which points to c:\wd. I
can cd \junction and run svn status, and it flags "." with a "~"
indicating that it thinks the current working directory is a file, not a
directory, which is obviously false. TortoiseSVN also does not think
that c:\junction is a working directory.

The problem seems to be with the way subversion decides if something is
a file, or a directory. I'm not sure how it makes that decision, but
obviously something is flawed with it.
