svn:needs-lock and symbolic links (svn:special) wedge repository

From: Greg Franks <rgfranks_at_alumni.uwaterloo.ca>

Setting svn:needs-lock on a symbolic link causes grief when trying to
do a pristine checkout of a repository:

% rm -rf petri-results
% svn update
A petri-results
A petri-results/A01.p
A petri-results/open1.p
...
A petri-results/priority-1.p
A petri-results/set5.p
svn: In directory 'petri-results'
svn: Can't change read-write perms of file 'petri-results/A01.in': No such file or directory

Now the fun part... As far as I know, I can't "check out" the file
to change the property (see above), and I can't change the property
using a URL.

% svn list http://franks.dnsalias.com/svn/lqn/branches/BUG_24/models/regression/petri-results/A01.in
A01.in
% svn proplist http://franks.dnsalias.com/svn/lqn/branches/BUG_24/models/regression/petri-results/A01.in
Properties on 'http://franks.dnsalias.com/svn/lqn/branches/BUG_24/models/regression/petri-results/A01.in':
  svn:special
  svn:needs-lock
% svn propdel http://franks.dnsalias.com/svn/lqn/branches/BUG_24/models/regression/petri-results/A01.in
property 'http://franks.dnsalias.com/svn/lqn/branches/BUG_24/models/regression/petri-results/A01.in' deleted from '.'.
%

It's probably a bad idea to set svn:needs-lock with svn:special anyway
:-)
