Thanks, but no dice.

I did an SVN Checkout into a new folder using the path:

The checkout worked ok, but when I try a Show log with log caching
enabled I get the same error:

  File not found: revision 2786, path '/s/Usr/steved/MillWideSuiteWork/V16'

 The file properties on the top level folder read:


Apparently file://////Wd-fs was mapped to file:///\Wd-fs by either
TortoiseSVN or SVN.

I looked around in the .svn folder and found that the "entries" file
shows the working folder and the repository folder file names:


I looked up x5c in an ASCII table, its a "\".

If I disable log caching, Show log works.

Unfortunately I can't access SVN repositories through our firewall,
otherwise I would try to track down the bug myself.
