Spaces in directories for svn:externals

I'm trying to configure the svn:externals property to check out a
directory with a space in the name.

I've done some searching and couldn't find a solution to this.

The problem is:
- I have an svn:externals property that includes a line like this:

System%20Reports http://mysvnserver/repos/repo1/System+Reports/trunk

This creates a directory on a windows box which has '%20' in the file
name. This is not what I want.

Trying this line:

System Reports http://mysvnserver/repos/repo1/System+Reports/trunk

Results in an error setting the svn:externals property:

svn: Error parsing svn:externals property on 'aliases\dev': 'System Reports...

Trying this line:
"System Reports" http://mysvnserver/repos/repo1/System+Reports/trunk

results in a very similar error on parse.

How can this be done?

Thanks in advance,
