Right now, you'll need to upgrade the server to trunk as well as the
client. (There is a way to make the client do correct sparse
checkouts even when the server is older and doesn't know about
--depth, but that compatibility code is not fully implemented yet.)

I think it will only expand the externals if depth is infinity... But
I haven't tested that. If you try it (after server upgrade) can you
let us know? Thank you.
