Date parsing issue on win32?

Sorry if this makes it to the list twice - don't think
it went through the first time:

I've been walking through the "Guided Tour" chapter in
the Subversion book, and have run into a problem in
the "Revision Dates" section. A number of different
examples of supplying dates in lieu of revision
numbers are given:

$ svn checkout --revision {2002-02-17}
$ svn checkout --revision {2/17/02}
$ svn checkout --revision {"17 Feb"}
$ svn checkout --revision {"17 Feb 2002"}
$ svn checkout --revision {"17 Feb 2002 15:30"}
$ svn checkout --revision {"17 Feb 2002 15:30:12 GMT"}
$ svn checkout --revision {"10 days ago"}
$ svn checkout --revision {"last week"}
$ svn checkout --revision {"yesterday"}

I'm trying out the examples, although with the update
command, against a file in one of my test projects.

The problem is that all but the first example fail,
with an error like:

>svn update --revision {2/17/02} readme.html
svn: Syntax error in revision argument '{2/17/02}'

I searched in the archive for someone reporting a
similar problem, and found someone with the same
problem, and the only response was to put the quotes
around the {} ... that doesn't improve things in my
case. Is this a Windows thing? I'm using Subversion
0.37, client is being run on a box with WinXP SP1.
