TortoiseSVN cannot handle symlinks because Windows cannot handle
symlinks. It's probably a Very Bad Idea to mix environments like
that. I'd recommend using a working copy only from one environment at
a time, if the working copy contains symlinks at all, because of the
different and incompatible ways in which the two environments treat
symlinks.
