I've recently been looking into similar issues. Windows has a
255-character path limit unless a) using a Unicode version of Windows
*and* b) using absolute paths (where you get 32k-length paths).

Try doing your Windows checkout specifying an absolute path for the
checkout target:

   svn co http://blahblahblah/ C:\Temp\MyWorkingCopy

And please report back here if this works for you (cuz your findings
may help me with the issue *I'm* looking at).

Thanks.
