Oh, my. I've been told in TortoiseSVN mailing list that the problem is not in TortoiseSVN itself, but in the svn lib, which seemes to belong to *this* mailing list.

So, I have a situation where NTFS trees with junction-ed directories on XP machines work fine (at least from my point of view) using bare svn commands (add, commit, update, status), but do not work that fine using TortoiseSVN commands (at least add and commit), apparently because svn lib does not support them well.

Is there any hope for me? Am I the only Windows XP user in this situation?
