Hi there,

Ant can do some pretty serious voodoo to try to exec commands. It does
this to work around the various quirks with how Java execs programs on
Windows. But the command it actually executes depends on the version of
Java and Windows. For example, if it needs to changes the current
working directory, I think it executes something like this:

    cmd.exe /c cd /d <new-working-dir> && <original command>

It might be worth trying to replicate what Ant is executing. Or maybe
trying to use Ant to exec a batch file that runs your svn command and
see if you get the same behaviour.
