Remaining of 'svn:executable' on changing file to link

if you have a link in subversion and this link has the property
'svn:executable' set, it will be not possible to (freshly) checkout.
See <http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=2344>

But if you replace an executable file with a link of the same name,
the property 'svn:executable' will remain.

Following setting:

% touch com.sh
% chmod +x com.sh
% svn add com.sh
% svn ci

Property 'svn:executable' is set.
Now change the file to a link:

% svn del com.sh
% ln -s ../bin/com.sh .
% svn add com.sh
% svn ci

Now 'com.sh' was replaced and has property 'svn:special' AND
'svn:executable' although it was deleted and added.

Why is the 'svn:executable' property not deleted, when the file
was deleted and a link with the same name was added?
