Having a problem with spaces in file names...

Hi All,

I'm having a problem with getting information on files in a remote
repository with spaces in their names. I know this is to be avoided
anyway, but unfortunately I am stuck with these file names. I'm using
Subversion 1.0, and the WebDAV module for Apache2. Everything is working
fine, apart from these files with spaces in them.

Say the file is called "blah blah", for example. The file does exist,
and is in the repository :

$ svn ls -v http://server.foo.com/svn/test
     19 ? 15 Mar 01 16:37 blah blah

But I can't use any other svn commands on it, and am struggling to find
the correct notation. I have tried the following, with the output shown
below (entering the URL into a web browser gets me straight to the file,
so I know the Apache side of things is working...) :

$ svn ls http://server.foo.com/svn/test/blah blah
svn: URL non-existent in that revision

$ svn ls http://server.foo.com/svn/test/blah%20blah
svn: URL non-existent in that revision

$ svn ls "http://server.foo.com/svn/test/blah blah"
svn: URL 'http://server.foo.com/svn/test/blah blah' is not properly

$ svn ls "http://server.foo.com/svn/test/blah%20blah"
svn: URL non-existent in that revision

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance,
