# Cannot commit/status/... on single files on network drive - bug in path construction

Dear TortoiseSVN userbase,

Currently, I am using TortoiseSVN 1.6.12, 64bit version, on a 64-bit
Windows 7 machine, and have checked out a repository to a folder on a
mapped network drive. Whenever I try to commit (or check the status
of) a file, the relevant dialog does pop up, but there is an error in
the dialog: "Can't open file
'M:\fieldtrip-local\ft_singleplotTFR.m\.svn\entries': The directory
name is invalid.". This error message was generated when trying to
commit the *file* 'M:\fieldtrip-local\ft_singleplotTFR.m', so the
directory name is indeed invalid.

This seems like a bug to me. There are no problems whatsoever after
checking out the same repository to a local drive, and attempting the
same commit. Also, committing works perfectly from the Linux command
line, using the checked out copy on the network drive.

Of course, I would be happy to answer any questions anyone might have
about this bug, or to file a bug in the bugtracker.

Best regards,

Eelke Spaak
