Bug report: SubWCRev fails for long paths

From: bugreport <M8R-fj4tn21_at_thisisnotmyrealemail.com>

I'm using SubWCRev with a repository that has a relatively deep
directory structure with long names.

When I use a command line of the form:
"C:\PathToSubWCRev\SubWCRev.exe" "C:\LongPathToRepository\x\..\x"
"C:\LongPathToRepository\Template.in" "C:\LongPathToRepository\Template.out"

it fails with the error message:
SubWCRev : Can't stat
'C:\LongPathToRepository\x\..\x\LongPathToSomeFile\SomeFile': The
filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.

(The command exits with code 6.)

The actual reported file path
(C:\LongPathToRepository\x\..\x\LongPathToSomeFile\SomeFile) is very
long. The error disappears when the repository is checked out to a
shorter path instead, such that
C:\ShorterPathToRepository\x\..\x\LongPathToSomeFile\SomeFile is 247
characters or less.

The "x\..\x\" part seems also to be required to trigger the problem.
