Thanks for the detailed bug report. I haven't looked at all the details
in your post yet, but one thing stood out:

> svn: warning: The file external from 'file:///tmp/repo/original/COPYING'
> cannot overwrite the existing versioned item at 'linked/COPYING'

I routinely get the same warning in my working copy of the ASF
Infrastructure repository, where the problem is a file external that
points at a mirror URL of the repository which is different to the
mirror URL I am using. (I use svn.eu.apache.org and the external points
to svn-master.apache.org.)

It causes 'svn up' to always have a non-zero exit code, but the update
otherwise finishes successfully.
