svn:externals not refreshed by svn switch

I have an issue with svn switch vs svn:externals properties.
Here is my case:

My DataBase:
project_tag_A calls 1 external sub-project : sub_tag_1
project_tag_B calls 1 external sub-project : sub_tag_2
I am expecting 2 states of db: A(including 1) or B(including 2)

My sequence of commands:
1) svn co .../project_tag_A project
2) cd project
2) svn switch ..../project_tag_B

Result in my WC:
project's contents is as in project_tag_B :) EXCEPT for
subproject still matching sub_tag_1. What happens is that
svn:externals property matches the one in project_tag_A :(

This means I am not guaranteed to get a fully tag-B compliant
copy when I use the switch command.

The only work-around I can think of is to recheck-out from scratch the
tag I want. This should be avoided by the switch command.

Is there anybody to agree this is a bug ? Am I doing it wrong ?
