Problems with space in file name

After reading through the mailing list, it seems this problem is not mentioned previously, if it is I apologize for bringing it up again. Regardless, it needs resolving.

Adding a file with a space in the file name and committing it works fine, however any subsequent edit and commit of this file will fail with:

"Error: Delta source ended unexpectedly"

A file with identical content and name, except with no space in the file name, works perfectly, I can edit and commit to my hearts content.

I'm using:
TortoiseSVN 1.8.4, Build 24972 - 64 Bit
on Windows 7 Ultimate (64 bit)

and to reproduce:

1. Create a folder in any repository
2. Add a new Word document called "Test Name.docx"
3. Add content
4. Add to SVN and commit (works fine so far)
5. Edit file
6. Try to commit (gives "Delta source ended unexpectedly")

The above causes errors on all my 3 Windows machines, regardless of which repository I use. Trying the same steps using the file name "TestName.docx" or even "Test_Name.docx" will NOT cause the error, leaving me to conclude the space in the file name is problematic.
I have verified this repeatedly, in as many variations as I can think of.

The SVN server is version 1.6.5, running on OpenIndiana (open source Solaris, which unfortunately does not have a more recent version in their repository, AFAIK).
