Blanks in PuTTY session names

Hi all,

I'm using TortoiseSVN under Windows XP and found a problem that seems to
be a SVN issue that has nothing to do with Tortoise.

I have installed PuTTY 0.58 in c:\programs\putty and
created a putty session named "mysession" and
duplicate that session with the name "my session"
(please note the space in the putty session name!).

Then I type on the commandline:
set SVN_SSH=c:/programs/putty/plink.exe -pw mypassword
svn list "svn+ssh://mysession/svnroot/repos/myproject"
This works fine. Now I type
svn list "svn+ssh://my session/svnroot/repos/myproject"
When I use svn as of svn-win32-1.1.4.zip, this works fine, too.
But when I use the latest version svn-win32-1.2.1.zip,
the last command (with the blank in the session name) fails.
It seems that svn now translates the putty session name to
my%20session, and such a putty session does not exist.
When I rename "my session" to "my%20session" in putty,
everthing works again just fine.

I think this is a bug somewhere in SVN.
PuTTY session names should not be encoded.
