The links occur in a 3rd-party package (Java for Solaris and Linux) which is checked in to the repository, and over which I have no control. Yes, I know we should structure things so that Linux and Solaris Java don't get checked out on Windows but I inherited this mess and can't change that just now.
Pretty much, my policy is to avoid symbolic links (and especially hard links) in my source repository since they tend to muck things up, even in a pure Unix/Linux environment.
The question is why you are using symbolic links in your source repository. If this is to allow files shared between projects, you are probably better off with svn:external. If this is something that is needed to run the program, you might consider using your build system to either duplicate or create the symbolic links at build time.

1) A repository containing files checked in from Linux, some of which are symbolic links.
4) svn status lists all the symlinks as "blocked" (status character '~') and TortoiseSVN shows them as having local modifications.
Is this working as expected?
