Ok now usually I would agree with you here and I do partially.
However, that could mean that ALL software that uses SVN on windows,
could now potentially be broken ;P (I am sure they could fix it
without breaking them ;P). Seeing tortoisesvn provides svn for a lot
of windows users and *that* is their svn perhaps tortoisesvn should
take this into account. In anycase, if svn handles this then
tortoisesvn will have to handle the end user messages produced by svn
and potentially opt into the api/methods to use my feature as per this
I am going to report this bug in svn as well, as you suggest. You are
correct, it is an svn bug.
