There were actually two issues with win32. I'm not sure whether the first
one was fixed, but the second definitely wasn't (there is a work around
though).

There is a problem, that the subversion team beleives is in Berkeley DB,
that only shows up on windows 98. I can't remember the specific details, but
will try to dig them up later on today.

The other issue, having to do with file urls was that subversion doesn't
recognize them is they have the drive letter specification. The workaround
is to be on the same drive, because the drive specification is accepted for
the other path, just not the URL.

Clear as mud now?
