'svn: Can't copy' when cheking out filenames with spaces

I'm using Subversion 1.3 on MacOSX 10.4.7 to check out files from my
server, which is running Subversion 1.3.2 on Linux (Red Hat 9).

A while ago I commited a file with spaces on it's name ( Relatorio de
processos.txt ). To commit this file I had to scape the spaces:

$ svn commit Relatorio\ de\ processos.txt

When I tried to check out the project with the command:

$ svn co -r 2 svn+ssh://svn@

I got the following error :

svn: Can't copy 'trunk/.svn/tmp/text-base/Relatorio de
processos.txt.svn-base' to 'trunk/Relatorio de processos.txt.tmp': No
such file or directory

I guess it has something to do with the shell trying to interpret the
spaces on the filename.

I tried to checkout the project on a Windows NT box and got the same

A svn move changing the filename (taking out the spaces) on the
server solves the problem, but I would like to be able to use files
with spaces on their names normally. I searched on the archive but
couldn't find anything that applies ( no conflicts between uppercase
and lowercase here).

Any suggestions are welcome.
