Checkouts build working copies, which means that your longest file
path length will, at some point, be extended by additional characters,
".svn/tmp/text-base/" between the dirname and basename, and
".svn-work" at the end of the path. If you're riding the line near
PATH_MAX, those additional characters could knock you over the
boundary.

Thanks for the follow-up.
