Error not showing in TortoiseSVN when it shows in svn

Just sent an email to the subversion users about an issue
(subject: URL case insensitivity vs SVN case sensitivity)

I didn't want to cross-post, but there was an issue where the svn
command line returning an error, but TortoiseSVN didn't.

Here's the relevant part:

One of our developers stumbled across an interesting issue where he
capitalised the repository name for a checkout when he shouldn't of.

Both the Subversion command line tool and TortoiseSVN perform the
checkout, and both failed on the commit. It's worth noting that you can
only supply incorrect case on the server and repository name in the URL,
you can't supply incorrect case in the repository path.

Using svn 1.3.1, the error returned was:
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: Authorization failed

Using TortoiseSVN 1.3.3, there was no error message other than:
Error Commit failed (details follow):


We're using Subversion 1.3.1 accessed via ra_svn with authorization
