broken file name handling

"svn up" from http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/mk.xiv fails from windows
clients (1.5 collab.net & tortoise)


as follows:


svn: Can't check path '?WHAT?.txt': The filename, directory name, or volume
label syntax is incorrect.


the repo browser shows "-WHAT-.txt"


It seems like the client and server don't agree on a canonical form for
filenames which may be incompatible with the underlying client file system.


Obviously in the short term, the problem can be fixed by renaming the file
in this project's repository.


a) I would appreciate a sanity check from a developer experienced with this

b) likewise, if there is a related bug already filed that someone on this
list knows about, I don't want to file a duplicate

c) I will also agree that there is likely no need to ever checkout the
specific file from this project's repository, but it did obtain an
"interesting" result.

d) as to who I am, why I care, etc ... I will do a proper introduction in a
separate posting. thanks.
