Submitting a changelist while obstructed item exists

It seems I can't submit a changelist while a file is marked as
obstructed, even though the obstructed file is not in the changelist.

Here's an example. Files '1' and '2' are modified, and both are in a
changelist named 'CL1'. The file '3' is obstructed, and it is not in a

nick_at_nimble ~/test_repo $ svn status
M 1
M 2
~ 3

nick_at_nimble ~/test_repo $ svn cl CL1 1 2
Path '1' is now a member of changelist 'CL1'.
Path '2' is now a member of changelist 'CL1'.

nick_at_nimble ~/test_repo $ svn status
~ 3

--- Changelist 'CL1':
M 1
M 2

nick_at_nimble ~/test_repo $ svn ci --cl CL1
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: Entry '/home/nick/test_repo/3' has unexpectedly changed special

I would expect svn to only attempt committing the contents of the
changelist, which in this example is the files '1' and '2'. But it
seems the existence of an obstructed file prevents the commit, even
though the obstructed file is not in the changelist and is not specified
to be included in the commit.

Is this by design?

Best regards,
