More details: when I use Subversion's svn command line client,
the behavior is the same as TortoiseSVN - commits from C:\work
do work fine, and commits from W:\ fail with the same error.

And this was not the case for version 1.4.3 - I have this
configuration (with subst) for long time (more than a year)
and I was forced to update recently.
