case sensitive issue when checking out specific revision numbers?

i hope that this is the correct place to report this issue - if not
then i would be grateful if someone could point me in the correct

for reference i am using tortoise svn 1.2.6 build 4786 - 32 bit on a
windows xp pro machine.

the issue i have looks like it is only with tortoise svn rather than
the subversion itself. i attempted to get a specific revision (80) of
the trunk of a project using tortoise svn from a repository located
here (please note the case of the second 'sdt'):


this attached checkoutAttempt.jpg shows the method i am trying to
use. regardless of whether i use:


...i get the same error message (shown in the attached svnError.jpg).

given this error i thought i would try using command line subversion
(i don't use tortoise much but i support a group of people that only
use tortoise). if i try the following line (notice lower case on
second 'sdt') it fails like so:

C:\sbryce\sdtProblemsFolder>svn checkout -r 80 svn://software/sdt/sdt/trunk
svn: File not found: revision 91, path '/sdt/trunk

whereas this works (noting the capitals on the second 'sdt'):

C:\sbryce\sdtProblemsFolder>svn checkout -r 80 svn://software/sdt/SDT/trunk
<many checkout msgs>
Checked out revision 80.

so the problem seems to be a case issue in tortoise, which is odd
because i have other repositories that i can checkout (using tortoise)
specific revisions from that have differing case
(e.g. /aNotherProject).

whilst i have a work around to this issue (by using a command line
client instead of tortoise svn) i thought i would report it as a
potential issue. if you can help me shed any light on why i can't
checkout a specific version of this one project then i would be very

thanks in anticipation,
