Externals and sparse checkouts on 1.8

updated three computers to (Tortoise)SVN 1.8 yesterday and one problem occurred on each of them:
After the initial wc upgrade, attempts to update fail while updating externals in folders that are not even checked out (sparse checkout).

C:\Projects\SomeFolder>svn up
Updating '.':
Removed external 'SubFolder\NotCheckOut\Externals\file.txt'
svn: E720003: Can't remove directory 'D:\Projects\SomeFolder\SubFolder\NotCheckOut\Externals': Das System kann den angegebenen Pfad nicht finden.

"Das System kann den angegebenen Pfad nicht finden." = "The system can not find the given path."
Which is correct, the path does not exist, as it is not checked out, as is the folder with the externals property on it.

The update is aborted after the error.
The error is only raised once per external, the subsequent update fails on the next external.
The current solution is to do multiple updates in a loop until all errors are gone.
