Subject EXTERNALS remote status not reported
Date Tue, 18 Mar 2014 10:07:45 GMT

For the following working copy structure:

- working_copy_root_dir
     -- externalFileNORMAL        (node status = normal)
     -- externalFileMISSING       (node status = missing)
     -- externalFileOBSTRUCTED    (node status = obstructed)

if I run:

cd working_copy_root_dir
svn status -u .

then, the out-of-date sign ('*') of the EXTERNAL files is not presented 
(like using "--ignore-externals" option, but I'm not), although I 
committed file content changes for the files to which those EXTERNALs 
point, from another working copy.

Is this an intended behavior?! I tested with:

svn, version 1.8.5 (r1542147)
    compiled Nov 27 2013, 04:10:18 on x86_64/x86-microsoft-windows5.1.2600

This behavior is consistent on both Windows and Linux.
