Here's a pre-commit hook to prevent this:




for ITEM in `$SVNLOOK changed -t "$TXN" "$REPOS" | $CUT -c 5-`; do
        $SVNLOOK propget -t "$TXN" "$REPOS" svn:special "$ITEM" >/dev/null
        if [ $? -eq 0 ]; then
                $SVNLOOK propget -t "$TXN" "$REPOS" svn:executable "$ITEM" >/dev/
null 2>/dev/null
                if [ $? -eq 0 ]; then
                        echo "Thou hast set the executable bit on the symlink \"$ITEM\"."
                        echo "Thou shalt not do that! It doth screw Subversion up verily."
                        exit 1
