Repository pathname problem

From: Deo Singh <deo.s.singh_at_googlemail.com>

I have just upgraded from version to version

See attachment for a screen shot of the problem.


1. My repository is on a server called: \\Research1 <file:///\\Research1>

2. on a disc called: 'elements'

3. the repository name is: SVN PS Repository


4. the full pathname is \\Research1\elements\SVN PS Repository.


When I try to browse the repository by clicking on the Working copy or on
the repository itself I get the error message:

Unable to open repository:

file: //research1/elements/SVN PS Repository/PS/Trunk


See attachment for a screen shot.


It appears that Tortise uses a pathname like: ///\Research1/elements/SVN PS

This gets transformed to: //research1/elements/SVN PS Repository/PS/Trunk


Note the Uppercase 'R', in research has changed to a lowercase 'r'. The
problem seems related to the

Escape sequence '/\R'


Interestingly I am still able to make updates/commits to the repository from
my working copy.


BTW: version works fine.


Any help or pointers to solving this problem would be greatly appreciated
