RE: broken file name handling

I can confirm that the current windows client is seeing the "?WHAT?.txt" when checking out root. (both Tortoise and Collab.Net command line client).

If it has been previously reported on this list, is there an open bug report?

thanks,
Paul

This is clearly wrong and has been reported before on this list, IIRC. A
client that checks out the HEAD of the root of our repository should
never see that old ?WHAT?.txt mentioned, ever.
