Bug in svn: protocol involving spaces

From: Stuart A. Malone <samalone_at_llamagraphics.com>

I believe that I have tracked down and can reproduce a problem in
subversion 1.0.6 involving the way the svn: protocol handles spaces in
pathnames. I have found places where issuing a diff or merge command
remotely using the svn: protocol will fail, where the same command
issued locally using the file: protocol will succeed.

For example, if I run this command directly on the subversion server,
it succeeds:

svn diff -r 1226:1193 file:///svnrepos/trunk/Projects/Life%20Balance

But if I run the equivalent command on the same repository from a
client machine, it fails:

svn diff -r 1226:1193 svn://whirlwind/trunk/Projects/Life%20Balance
svn: Invalid editor anchoring; at least one of the input paths is not a
directory and there was no source entry

If I do a diff directly on the Projects directory (leaving out
"/Life%20Balance"), it succeeds on both machines.

Attached is a csh script that reproduces the error. Edit the
repository variable at the top of the script to point to a writable
repository that uses the svn: protocol.
