in Linux guest, Subversion can't create symbolic link in shared folder from Windows host

svn: E000071: Can't create symbolic link '/media/sf_OpenVPN/somefile.tmp': Protocol error

The Linux guest is Debian Squeeze running Subversion 1.7 (latest trunk build) The Windows host running Virtualbox is running Vista

When checking out a subversion repository into a shared folder, if the repository has any symbolic links checked in, you'll get this error. The shared folder isn't handling this case properly.

Resolution: duplicate
Status: newclosed

Closing as duplicate of #818. Symbolic links for Windows hosts is already implemented. However, there are strange permission issues: There is a special permission required to create symbolic links on Windows.
