Thanks, now I can see the picture.

That's really strange. Do you use other SVN clients too or just TSVN?
Because this shouldn't happen.
I can't really tell if maybe one of the folders has a space at the end
and the other not (that would make those folders have different names,
but not enough different for us to really 'see'). Can you perhaps try to
rename both folders and check in the rename dialog if there's a space at
the end of one of those folders? You don't have to actually rename them,
just start the rename dialog from the repo browser.

It's certainly harmless, but still it shouldn't happen. If you got there
with only TSVN, then I would definitely want to know how this could have
