Right after i created the repos, I had these troubles with the long
pathnames, but these were solved with the import done from cmd line
Subst works fine and i'm using it for quite a long time to solve other
issues like the above. But there are much longer paths in the same working
copy from the same repo and they work without any problems. So i think this
isn't the reason why the error "...Sperrmarke..." occurs (actually, the
path/to/the/file we're talking about is about 100 chars in size).
I never had to use workarounds like "\\.\" or subst again in this repo
after the successful import and accessed it only through tsvn.
Are there some consistency check tools availably which go beyond what "svn
