Spaces at the ends of folder names prevent checkouts

If I rename a folder in SVN so that it has a space at the end, it stops
being possible to check out a working copy of the parent.

This was reported on the users list and confirmed by one other person
against a recent trunk build.

I am using svn command-line client 1.4.5 (r25188) on Windows XP, with a
build date of 22-Aug-07 - this is the latest binary release available
from the main Subversion site. I'm trying to check out a URL of http://server/svn/sandbox/usr/ash which contains three folders 'Box',
'Trunk ' (note the trailing space) and 'TrunkTwo'. Inside 'Trunk ' is a
single file 'Branch_test_file.c'.

Transcript (I'm using Cygwin bash as the shell):

$ rm -rf ash
$ svn co http://server/svn/sandbox/usr/ash
svn: Can't create directory 'ash\Trunk \.svn': The system cannot find the path specified.

What is checked out is a top-level folder 'ash', containing a '.svn'
folder and an empty folder 'Trunk' (without a trailing space in the name).
