RE: [TSVN] can't set svn:externals property to reference a directory with a space

Well, normal people won't understand why it svn can't parse it and
what they must do to fix it (remove the space or encode it);
but then again normal people probably wouldn't try to use svn:externals.

If there is no obvious way to fix it - perhaps you could check for this situation
and give a more obvious error message?

Thanks,
Chuck
