Win32 command line

I'm using the Command Prompt in Windows XP. Getting the help for CMD/?

If /C or /K is specified, then the remainder of the command line after
the switch is processed as a command line, where the following logic is
used to process quote (") characters:

    1. If all of the following conditions are met, then quote characters
        on the command line are preserved:

        - no /S switch
        - exactly two quote characters
        - no special characters between the two quote characters,
          where special is one of: &<>()@^|
        - there are one or more whitespace characters between the
          the two quote characters
        - the string between the two quote characters is the name
          of an executable file.

    2. Otherwise, old behavior is to see if the first character is
        a quote character and if so, strip the leading character and
        remove the last quote character on the command line, preserving
        any text after the last quote character.

It looks like I'm encountering case 2.

The Command Prompt shortcut properties executes %SystemRoot%\system32\cmd.exe
There are exactly 2 quote characters.
No special characters.
There is whitespace inside the quotes.
None of the words are executable commands in my PATH.

Maybe there's some registry setting that is affecting it?

This is all very strange. Does this happen in any working copy, or just
one? Are you sure you're not using some sort of wrapper around the
Subversion binaries?
