We have several Projects running on a *nix System.
All Programmes are working on WINXP 32.
The Projects a are connected via Sambaand mounted as Drives.
The basic structure is like

On the *nix machine:

mounted as drive x:

Since we updated we can not perform any operation on files!!
We get messages like
Can't open file
Incorrect syntax for filename, folder or volume
Seems like Tortoise tries to handle files as folders, since it ALWAYS appends a path .\svn\entries to the files
and sure there are no


This happens on all projects!

I tried it locally, and it worked fine.
There were NO changes on the networkstorage, repositry storage or anything else.

Desparatly seeking help!

Otherwise => Great software !
