svn status -u crashes on incoming additions

Hello everybody,
recently we've faced a strange bug which causes crash of svn clients.
It was observed on windows with either JavaHL (Subclipse), Tortoise or
command line.
First noticed on 1.2.0. Seems to still be there in 1.2.3.
Unconfirmed reports also claim it was crashing on Linux (debian/unstable)
The bug seemed to be strange at first, but fortunatelly later it showed it's
pretty deterministic and reproducible.
So, how to get it:
Working copy 1)
- under some versioned directory create a new directory.
- add this new sub-dir to svn:ignore
- commit
Working copy 2)
- do "svn add" on this new sub-dir.
- do NOT remove it from svn:ignore
- commit
Working copy 1)
- do svn status -u ==> client crashes.
It happens when getting status on a directory which:
- is present locally and unversioned (ignored)
- the same directory is incoming as addition but it's NOT removed from
