Issue with merging files containing spaces

I'm running into an issue when doing branch merges. It seems that file
names with spaces in them
cannot properly be merged, resulting in the merging error:

svn: URL 'http://host/svn/repos/trunk/dir with spaces/file.txt' is malformed
or the scheme or host or path is missing.

I've isolated down the cause of the problem to the following function:

       int ne_uri_parse(const char *uri, ne_uri *parsed);

It seems that when trying to parse the path component, it is doing the
following:

       while (uri_lookup(*p) & URI_SEGCHAR)
            p++;

The problem here is that definition of URI_SEGCHAR includes only the
following:

FS -- /
PC -- %
PS -- +
SD -- ! $ & ' ( ) * + , ; =
CL -- :
AL -- Alpabet
DG -- Digit
DS -- dash
DT -- .
US -- _
TD -- ~

Notice that spaces are not included in this definition.

So the solution is either to change how neon parses the URI, or to properly
escape the spaces with a "+" symbol
in the "session.c" file which is calling into the neon library.

Any thoughts?
