It's not the best fix, but we edit svn.exe with a binary editor (vs.net works well).
Search for the string ".svn" and replace with "_svn". Save and deploy the exe to all
clients. There is no need to deploy the modified exe to the server.

If you have any existing working directories, then run the following script to rename all
.svn directories to _svn:

FOR /R %%f IN (.svn) DO IF EXIST "%%f" (
  ATTRIB -h "%%f"
  RENAME "%%f" _svn

Editing the exe is not the most graceful solution, but it is somewhat simpler than
building from sources.

Hope this helps
