Subversion works perfectly fine on Windows, within the limits of
Windows itself (which is what you're running into here).

Can you check out at a deeper level? You're checking out from a
directory above the trunk - this implies to me that you need to check
out trunk, tags and branches (assuming your repository has them).
Could you check trunk out directly to a directory off the root of your
drive (to shorten the path)?
