Why can't one checkout a single file?

Hi,

If I have 50 hugh files in a dir and I wanna update a single file, why
can't I just "svn co url://....file.txt", edit it, and then commit?

Doing this today creates a dir called file.txt which must be way wrong?

C:\shit>svn co file:///testrep/test1/Form1.cs
svn: Attempted to create entry in non-directory parent

C:\shit\Form1.cs>svn ls
Form1.cs

C:\shit\Form1.cs>dir Form1.cs
 Volume in drive C has no label.
 Volume Serial Number is 9012-CECC

 Directory of C:\shit\Form1.cs

File Not Found

C:\shit\Form1.cs>svn info
Path: .
URL: file:///testrep/test1/Form1.cs
Repository UUID: 0a41a2c7-ed65-8444-a021-225ae52f3f31
Revision: 47
Node Kind: directory
Schedule: normal

Thanks,
  Per
