Well, judge by yourself. If a do checkout of r613166 from
into say
it works. If I checkout the same repo into a slightly longer root directory like
the checkout dialog of TortoiseSVN aborts with the following error lines:
  Error> Can't create directory
  Error> 'G:\maven-trunk\maven-embedder\src\test\error-reporting-projects
          The filename or extension is too long.

Maybe there is some code line in TortoiseSVN that does not use absolute paths
when dealing with the file system?

P.S.: The line breaks in the error message are artificial. I am using the web
mailer and it insists on a maximum line length of 80 chars.
