Volumes are either on the network, NTFS or Ext2 (this last one on XP, but this volume was never accessed by any other OS than XP - since their is no other OS on this computer).

Is your working copy in the drive root (either a real drive or a SUBST
drive), e.g. C:\WorkingCopy\Blah rather than
C:\Folder\WorkingCopy\Blah? There is a known problem with subversion
handling drive names incorrectly on Windows.
