svn co win32 and linux filesystem compatibility question

From: v4r4n <console.cowboy_at_gmail.com>

So here is the error message I get when grabbing a working copy using my svn
1.2.3 on a win32 machine:

svn: In directory '<dir>'
svn: Can't copy '<dir>\.svn\tmp\text-based\<filename>.svn-base' to
'<dir>\<filename>.tmp': The system cannot find the file specified.

 The specific file svn always stops on ends with a '.0' but I don't believe
it is the problem file. The previous file being checked out is also a
simple '<name>.<extension>' file.

During a checkout, at what point does svn decide it is faced with a critical
error since the file it stops at, isn't the problem?

There are no issues with any files in this folder on a linux system, but
windows raises a flag.

I renamed a file that started with a '.' but wasn't sure if that was the
only possible problem (it wasn't).

Is there any chance that a funny character within one of these files could
be causing the error?
Do the *nix file permissions have any effect on a win32 checkout?
Other than these characters \ / * ? | " < > : does windows xp have other
possible issues with *nix compatible file names?

If none of the file names are identical (taking case insensitivity into
account) what else could cause this error?

Anyone have a good bash search string that would list possible files on a
*nix system that a win32 box wouldn't like but svn doesn't treat any
