externals definition: surprising behaviour

Hello,
I detected a surprising behaviour of externals definition (svn 1.5.5):

- the repository path http://ABC:9090/def/ghi
  has an svn:externals with a value "-r 100 /uvw/xyz xyz"

- checkout of http://ABC:9090/def/ghi

- One can make changes/commits on the working copy of
http://ABC:9090/def/ghi/xyz,
  and it will take effect on trunk of /uvw/xyz, even an update will not
get
  revision 100 but trunk!

But: If I use an explicit revision in my externals I don't want access
to trunk.
I think that is a bug cause that may result in instable software.

Regards
Hartmut
