RE: checkout subdirectory under windows

Windows has a few words that are reserved, and you can't name a
file/directory with them.

See this post on the TSVN list:

Subject: checkout subdirectory under windows

Hi,

having worked with a subversion + apache webdav solaris server and
linux/solaris subversion clients quite well, I encountered problems
with windows clients (tortoise and rapidsvn alike).

On checkout some files in the main directory trunk are checked out o.k.,
but with the first subdirectory aux the error message goes

.. Can't check path 'trunk\aux': The parameter is incorrect.

Looking for unix file names, which could give problems with windows,
I have none with blanks or umlauts, nor are they the same when lowercased.

The error message baffles me: which parameter? check path meaning
checking out to this path?

Any ideas are welcome!
