Problem replacing symbolic links

From: <Michael.McElroy_at_schange.com>

I have a working copy with a symbolic link.When I remove the link and
replace it with a regular file, I can't commit.
The only way I can do this is in two steps: first, delete and commit, then
add and commit. Is this a bug or did I miss something?
Here's the whole sequence:

 ls -l route
 ../bin/busybox

svn del route
D route

cp /opt/timesys/linux/4.1/iq80331/rfs/sbin/route .
svn stat
~ route

svn add route
A (bin) route
svn status
~ routesvn commit -m "Replacing link with binary"

svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: Entry '/home/mvm/sb/fsi102/ramdisk_fsi/sbin/route' has unexpectedly
changed special status

svn del route
svn: 'route' is in the way of the resource actually under version control

rm route
svn status
! route

svn del route
D route
svn stat
D route

svn commit -m "Replacing link with binary"
Deleting sbin/route

Committed revision 452.

Thanks for any help. It's a great product.
