I do not think that this has anything specifically to do with
svn:externals. It sounds like you are using TortoiseSVN 1.4 and an svn
1.3 command line client. The 1.4 client updated the working copy to the
new format so you need to use all 1.4 clients to work with it.

In TortoiseSVN, you can just bring up the standard Windows properties
dialog and TortoiseSVN adds a Subversion page to the the dialog.
