Yes: reduce the path length.
If the paths really are longer than MAX_PATH (260 chars), then you can't
use the explorer itself to work with those files (the explorer has a 260
char limit for paths, and that's why TSVN has the same limitation -
there's no way around that).
Or you have to use the command line client - but you still won't be able
to work with the explorer with those files.
