SVN recursion on Windows cannot penetrate deep trees properly

Subversion version: 1.2.3
Platform: Windows XP service pack 2

We have been using Subversion for 3 months now and have been experiencing
strange problems when performing commits and cleanups. I have been tracking
the problem in our team and it appears that when doing an commit/cleanup on
the root of our repository it doesn't reach the bottom of the tree. We have
used the svn command line, tortoise and the eclipse plugins but always get
the same results. In the last week we have been trying the pure java
implementation via the eclipse svn plugin and this does not appear to have
the same problems.

I don't know anything about the API calls into the Windows platform that
subversion uses but I do remember from years ago that some of the C++
recursion functions can fail with deep trees due to hard coded path depths
of 256-1024 bytes.

I have waited a month or so to report this issue hoping that we could get
firmer information but haven't managed to achieve any more than I've got
