svn:externals problem in checkout

        I need some help in my design structure in SVN server. I have
project that is composed by other projects, so I have started to use
svn:externals property as the link between projects.
        But the problem comes when I try to do a checkout of folders
that belong from project B into an existing folder in project A. It
gives me the following error:

        Fetching external item into 'EEBXXX_YYYZZZ\Dev'
        svn: 'EEBXXX_YYYZZZ\Dev' is already a working copy for a
different URL

        My svn:externals is: "Dev/ https://repository/trunk/toto"

        Where directory Dev already exist in project A, but when I
change the value to:
        "Dev/temp https://repository/trunk/toto"
        Where temp is not under SVN control, then it works fine.

        Is it normal? Is there another way to avoid this kind of
problem? Should I use something else than svn:externals for this

        Thanks in advance,

Olavo Lira
