Subversion repositories and spaces

Is there a way to checkout directories and files with spaces in the
names. The files were checked in Ok, they were done with cvs2svn.py.
When I check them out, I get the following (After a huge wait (Is that a
timeout or something?)):

[svnuser_at_svn svnuser]$ svn co http://svn/svn
A svn/MARKETING/Promotional Materials
subversion/libsvn_ra_dav/util.c:408: (apr_err=175002)
svn: RA layer request failed
svn: PROPFIND request failed on '/svn/!svn/bc/4502/MARKETING/Promotional
subversion/libsvn_ra_dav/util.c:81: (apr_err=175002)
svn: PROPFIND of '/svn/!svn/bc/4502/MARKETING/Promotional Materials':
404 Not Found (http://svn)

Perhaps Subversion could do some URL encoding with %20s etc? Or I am
missing something completely.
After the above message happens, if I run the same command again, the
files are checked out in the "Promotional Materials" directory.
This then continues until the next space is found.

Of course I could use:
svn co http://svn/svn/MARKETING/Promotional%20Materials
But this is not practical for large directories with many spaces.

Have you guys worked out spaces in the editor path in windows? In the
meantime I used CYGWIN and "ln" to create a link to the exe in c:\.

Thanks again
