Hi Erik,

I apologize for the top posting even though it is not my fault for the
email client doing this automatically.

And so far as I know the filesystem on linux is much more stronger than
windows. So it is hard to say this is a bug in linux itself for I can
create a file in the same name in linux. And another thing I want to
mention is we can not avoid this issue for we are working in a cross
platform for embeded system.

The interesting thing is this filaname is a test case for filesystem (for
linux and windows). So where is the problem? linux? apr? subversion? or
something else?

I don't know. But still thanks for your reply from which I know there is
no limits built in subversion!

Thanks!

Best regards!

Sincerely,
Alex Zhu
