When it shows just on of these in the first and a path in the second column,
the path is AFAICT complete.

In these cases, the error-message is sometimes truncated, because
"<really-long-path> failed to do this or that with" is probably too long for
the column.

Yes, I know. ;)

Seriously, the structure I use is really deeply nested (I will have to move a
few things) so that for some items SVN itself fails - probably a MAX_PATH
issue. For some paths for which SVN still works, an error (like e.g. a
conflict) enlarges the content of the second column so far that the whole
message is truncated. Could it be that I'm hitting a limit of MS Windows'
listboxes or that you are using a too small static buffer for the output?
