Checkout target restricted dir name length

Hi,

 

I'm having a little problem concerning checkouts from Subversion.

I've written a batch script that checks out the latest Subversion
revision to a folder.

I've already figured out that when the folder name has more then 6
characters, the checkout fails.

The following error arises:

 

svn: Your .svn/tmp directory may be missing or corrupt; run 'svn
cleanup' and try again

svn: Can't open file
'usermanagement\usermanagement-tiers\usermgmt-presentation-tier\usermgmt
-presentation-web\usermgmt-presentation-web-citizenadmin\src\main\java\b
e\fedict\usermgmt\citizenadmin\constants\.svn\tmp\text-base\CitizenAdmin
Constants.java.svn-base':

The system cannot find the path specified.

 

When I set the target dir to a name of 6 or less characters, the
checkout succeeds.

 

Is this just a coincidence, or is there really an issue with checkouts
and path name lengths?

Is there somebody who has dealt with this issue before?

 

Kind regards
