Avoid this. You should in this case add a "normal" folder named
"subdir" and set svn:externals on it. That is don't put path
separators in the svn:externals property. When I check that out on a
Mac I will get a single directory in "folder" named "subfolder\ext"
the backslash will be part of the directory name, it will not create
a hierarchy.
