BUG: svn delete doesn't remove symlinks

svn delete doesn't remove symlinks when deleting unversioned folders.
Here's a transcript that demonstrates this:

Eldamar:~/Dev/Scratch$ svnadmin create --fs-type fsfs repo
Eldamar:~/Dev/Scratch$ svn co file://$PWD/repo wc
Checked out revision 0.
Eldamar:~/Dev/Scratch$ cd wc
Eldamar:~/Dev/Scratch/wc$ svn mkdir dir
A dir
Eldamar:~/Dev/Scratch/wc$ cd dir
Eldamar:~/Dev/Scratch/wc/dir$ touch foo
Eldamar:~/Dev/Scratch/wc/dir$ svn add foo
A foo
Eldamar:~/Dev/Scratch/wc/dir$ mkdir bar
Eldamar:~/Dev/Scratch/wc/dir$ svn propset svn:ignore bar .
property 'svn:ignore' set on '.'
Eldamar:~/Dev/Scratch/wc/dir$ cd bar
Eldamar:~/Dev/Scratch/wc/dir/bar$ ln -s ../foo
Eldamar:~/Dev/Scratch/wc/dir/bar$ cd ../..
Eldamar:~/Dev/Scratch/wc$ svn commit -m ''
Adding dir
Adding dir/foo
Transmitting file data .
Committed revision 1.
Eldamar:~/Dev/Scratch/wc$ ls
Eldamar:~/Dev/Scratch/wc$ svn delete dir
D dir/foo
D dir
svn: Can't remove 'dir/bar': Directory not empty

This was done with Subversion 1.2.0 RC 2.

This is a moderately annoying bug because it crops up every time I
try to delete/move a folder with an Xcode project that's been built
(because the build dir has symlinks buried inside).
