Checkout including externals is getting the head revision instead of specified one

since I am using svn, version 1.7.1 (r1186859) compiled Oct 22 2011,
I got the problem that when I checkout some code that is using externals
with a special specified revision of that external to be checked out
svn checks out the head revision in stead of the specified revision number.

When I use svn update after checkout on that trunk than the revision of
that external is corrected.

I am not shure if this is a subversion bug or if anything is wrong on my


1. Checkout a trunk that is using an external with a special revision
number e.g.: svn:externals -r 10163 ^/path destination
2. Check if that external was checked out with revision 10163 or if it
was checked out with head revision
     Due to that it is recommended that the revision 10163 is not the
head revision
3. Update the trunk containing the external code in the working copy
using svn update
4. Check if the revision is now the right one
