Re: Is it possible to tell subversion to follow wc symlinks instead of versioning them?

I believe this is another symptom of a bug I reported a few months ago
and is still in the tracker. See:

http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=2284 for more
information.

Due to the bug in io.c subversion can not properly handle symlinks to
directories because it always thinks a symlink is a file.
