"Can't open 'tmp': There is not enough space on the disk"

    Just thought I would share a solution to the problem above as there
where not that many answers to this question when I went looking for it.

   I would get the "Can't open 'tmp': There is not enough space on the disk"
error when ever I attempted to merge code. However I had plenty of space
available on my Drive.

ATTEMPTS for solutions:
1. I attempted the round about ways of looking for tmp variables in
code with no luck
2. Re-installation of both the Subversion code and the TortioseSVN with
no change in the problem.
3. It worked find on all other Machines but mine.. ( I have not used
that one in years.. ha ha)
4. Event attempted to create another project,branch etc... and see if
they're where any corrupt components. Nada..

In the end I found out that it was related to some system Variables HOME
and HOMEDRIVE. These variables drive the location of where subversion will
create its tmp files for the merge process. Now the funny thing is there
variables only existed in my REGISTRY. I see this only as a problem for
people that have large corporations that Ghost there machines and have
strict Policies like where I work.

I hope this helps the people that may have been stuck out there as I was for
a few days.
