links to files not created yet breaks checkout

In my repository, I have two directories named admin_web and applet. There are some symlinks in admin_web pointing to some files in applet using relative filenames (one example is in admin_web/applet, there is a symlink jdom.jar -> ../../applet/jdom.jar)

When I checkout the repository to a new directory, it checks out the admin_web directory first, and aborts when it hits the symlink with the error:

svn: In directory 'test/admin_web/applet'
svn: Can't move 'test/admin_web/applet/jdom.jar.tmp' to 'test/admin_web/applet/jdom.jar': No such file or directory

The file jdom.jar.tmp is in the admin_web directory, and is a symlink pointing to ../../applet/jdom.jar as it should.

At that point, I can go into the test directory, call "svn update applet" to pull in the applet directory, and then I can successfully cleanup and update admin_web.

I'm using version 1.2.0 (r14790). Am I doing something wrong with the symlinks (I just added them using svn add like any other file), or is this a bug?

Jon
