Bug: broken URL in .svn/entries (filename containing whitespace)

Hello all!

I have seen broken URLs in the .svn/entries file several times now using version 1.5.4 (Win32).
When renaming files/directories containing whitespace in the filename, sometimes
the URL in the .svn/entries file also contains some whitespace instead of %20.
Then, when trying to commit the working copy, the transaction fails with subversion not finding
a file (only the part of the filename up to the whitespace is printed in the error message).
To work around this problem, it worked to edit the .svn/entries file and replace whitespace in
the URL by %20.

In all cases when I saw it, I had renamed both the file/directory and the parent directory which
contained the file/directory in the working copy. However, I cannot reliably reproduce the bug.
