You also have to use a path to the repository with no spaces or special
chars in it. Inside the repository that's no problem, but since the
whole url gets escaped, the path to the repository must not have such
chars in it since local paths are not allowed to be escaped.

So, instead of putting your repository at
\\research1\elements\SVN Repository
put it e.g., to


  oo  // \\      "De Chelonian Mobile"
 (_,\/ \_/ \     TortoiseSVN
   \ \_/_\_/>    The coolest Interface to (Sub)Version Control
