No, why? [I suppose you were not going to report 'st' is broken?] What
you're seeing is correct behaviour: symlinks themselves are versioned
objects, so you're not asking Subversion

"what's the info on 'the path the symlink points to'", but you're
asking "what's the info of '/path/to/symlink' within its working copy

Other than brokenness of 'st', I can't think of a reason to file a bug.
