Re: SSH svnserver under windows?

        Ok, I sorta got it working. I can now connect to the server and do a checkout but the client (TortoiseSVN)
has to pass in an ugly path like /program%20files/subversion/myrepository. I read about passing a -r <root path>
argument here (http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.1/svn-book.html#svn-ch-6-sect-3.1) but to my understanding this is
something you configure on the client end and:

1) I don't see where you configure it in TortoiseSVN
2) This is something that really belongs on the server-end in my opinion.

        Is there a way to fix this behavior for SSH? Looks like an oversight since normal daemon connections support
this behavior.
