Problems with hot_backup.py on Windows XP

From: David Colton <DColton_at_curamsoftware.com>

First up I don't know Python.


Second I've tried this with the following versions of Python with the same

* 2.4.1
* 2.3.5
* 2.2.3


I think that this relates to this issue:

* http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=1587


As stated in the subject I'm running this on a Windows XP FSFS Subversion
server. I'll be moving to Red Hat Enterprise Server as soon as the server
arrives but in the meantime ...


C:\Program Files\Subversion\tools\backup>hot-backup.py \SVNRepository

Beginning hot backup of '\SVNRepository'.

Youngest revision is 2270

Backing up repository to '\SVNBackup\SVNRepository-2270'...

Traceback (most recent call last):

  File "C:\Program Files\Subversion\tools\backup\hot-backup.py", line 129,
in ?

    backup_subdir, "--clean-logs")

  File "C:\PROGRA~1\PYTHON~2\lib\os.py", line 523, in spawnl

    return spawnv(mode, file, args)

OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory


I've tried rewriting the os.spawnl as os.spawnv with no luck. I've tried all
forms of paths. I've tried running in sh.exe from the Gnu UnixTools. I
always get this exact same error.
