%file unwise?

I'm converting an old CVS repository which has many files named %meta.
Mostly this has worked fine, until I tried a merge between two branches
where one branch had a %meta file that had to be created as a result of
the merge. When I went to commit, I got an error:

  svn: Commit failed (details follow):
  svn: PROPFIND request failed on '/SVN/branches/rev1-branch/develop/tests/%meta'
  svn: PROPFIND of '/SVN/branches/rev1-branch/tests/%meta': 400 Bad Request (http://www.mlbassoc.com)

When I did 'svn info' on that file in my WC, I got strange results:

  [gthomas@hermes packages]$ svn info tests/%meta
  Path: tests/%meta
  Name: %meta
  URL: http://www.mlbassoc.com/SVN/rev2-branch/tests/%25meta
  Revision: 0

Should I just rename all of my %meta files to something else (and change the
tools & scripts that use them :-()?
