I hope this will work with junctions, too, as from my understanding
both are technically different, but even MSDN often just refers to
"symbolic links", but mentions reparse points later on, which implied
Junctions when "true" symbolic links didn't exist in NTFS yet.

Definitely +1 from me or maybe consider restoring the old behavior
were Subversion didn't care about Junctions at all, but simply worked.
Does Subversion store absolute paths to working copies inside the
working copy or why should it care to resolve junctions(/links) in new

Mit freundlichen Grüßen,
