      Description

      The svnbook says,
      
      "Keep this in mind when defining file externals. If you need the external to
      refer to a certain revision of a file you will not be able to modify the
      external. If you want to be able to modify the external, you cannot specify a
      revision other than the HEAD  revision, which is implied if no revision is
      specified."
      
      But in reality this is possible! During a 'svn up' it is possible to postpone a
      conflict and later resolve and commit the modification on a file externals with
      certain revision.
      
      Reproduction recipe is on the way.
