unix/windows symlink issue

From: Geoff Ransom <geoffr_at_cs.umd.edu>

Hello
   We have a fsfs subversion repo which has started having problems after being
access from both windows and unix systems.

   [geoffr_at_nobby svn]$ svn -q co https://nobby.cs.umd.edu/svn/repo/sec-update/RT-labels
   svn: In directory 'RT-labels'
   svn: Unsupported special file type '%'

Poking about makes me think that this is the symlink issue; that code.sty was
a symlink before the windows box got a hold of it. The "%" is probably from
the comment in the head of code.sty.

   [geoffr@nobby RT-labels]$ more .svn/props/code.sty.svn-work
   K 11
   svn:special
   V 1
   *
   END

The server was running the SVN modules from V1.1.1, so I tried switching to
V1.3.0 without a change in behavior, but my guess is that I need to fix the
file in the repo. Is there some way to correct this file in the repository, or
do I have to restore it from backups before it was damaged?

Is this symlink issue fixed with some particular version of subversion?

I would expect this to be a FAQ issue, but was not able to find anything on
this issue in the faq beyond acknowldgement of a windows/unix symlink issue.
Feel free to point out any sources of information that I missed and *should*
have read before mailing to the list.

Thanks.
