APR and directory paths > 260 characters

From: TimV <tdvargo_at_sandia.gov>

I have been following the previously known issue with why TSVN v1.4.X
(and earlier?) had problems with directory paths > 260 characters in
length. There are several discussion treads on this subject, but the
last word from Stefan seems to be:
> I've patched apr for the TSVN build. So once TSVN 1.5 gets
officially
> released, long dir names won't be a problem anymore.

The Apache team also claims to have fixed the "real" problem, in the
APR:
>> We're seeing this problem more and more often popping up on
>> users_at_subversion.t.o. Any progress on the issue?
>
> Committed for 1.3 and 0.9, thanks for the reminders guys!

So, the APR v1.3.2 was released on 17-Jun-2008 (and v1.3.3 released 9-
Aug-2008), yet the latest version of TSVN (v1.5.3) is still built
against APR v1.2.12, which was prior to the patch committed for v1.3.
Still, if Stefan's own custom patch is correct, then the APR v1.3
won't make a difference?

AFTER migrating from TSVN v1.4.8 up to v1.5.3, I am STILL having long
pathname problems with both commits and updates. Here is one common
example of an error, after attempting an Update:

     Can't open file 'L:\Documents\Business\Project
     Files\ICADS_GNT\usnds-nsgdp-hw-build6 (SVN)\LBDA\TC\Software\Trunk
\Message
     Formatting and Parsing\Message Prototypes\ADP_ETS Interfaces\ADP
to ETS Command
     Messages\Strings to Messages\.svn\text-base\String to ETS Normal
     Status.vi.svn-base': The system cannot find the file specified.

The file referenced in the error message does exist, but only with its
short (8.3) filename, which is not what TSVN is looking for. All my
examples of problems only involve WC paths which include a .svn
folder; although I have no paths in my WCs which OUTSIDE of a .svn
folder, have a pathname >260 characters.

I suspect that this problem is a left-over from prior usage of TSVN
v1.4.8. How do I recover from this?
