Can't checkout svn:externals URL using Peg revision

I've searched the list archives as best I can and I'm pretty sure I understand the differences between and how to use Peg and Operative revisions.

I have a repository at svn://server/repos. That repository has projects at svn://server/repos/TaggedProject and svn://server/repos/Common (simplified example). I set svn:externals on TaggedProject pointing to "-r20 svn://server/repos/Common". Later I realized that it's probably better to use a Peg revision to protect against upcoming changes to Common. So I changed the svn:externals to point to "svn://server/repos/Common@20". Now both checkout and update on TaggedProject throw an error on the external, "URL
svn://server/repos/Common@20 doesn't exist".

I've tried via Tortoise and the command line. I've also tried svn list and svn cat on the Peg URL, and both work as expected (they can find the resource).

I have a feeling I'm not understanding something about SVN... can anyone enlighten me?
