svn move with external definitions?

while trying to improve on the "HOWTO: Keep your / under subversion" before I publsih it, run into
the following problem:

# svn co svn+ssh://user@svn/home/user/repos/hosts

# cd hosts

# ls -1

# svn mv P4desktop/ specific/desktop/

Performing status on external item at 'P4desktop/etc/portage'
svn: Use --force to override this restriction
svn: Move will not be attempted unless forced
svn: 'P4desktop/etc/portage' is not under version control

# svn propget svn:externals P4desktop/etc/
portage svn+ssh://luser@svn/home/user/repos/hosts/common/desktop/etc/portage

However, this works as expected.
# svn mv svn+ssh://user@svn/home/user/repos/hosts/{,specific/desktop/}P4desktop

And while further playing, I got another instatnce of the same problem, so I can define the problem.

How can I move a path in the working directory when it has svn:externals in it?

could not help me much :-(
