[Windows] Problem with folder name having blank space at the end
I have set up Subversion 1.4.5 (r25188) and I just found out that if you
rename a folder in subversion with a blank space at the end of the name
e.g. "foldername" -> "foldername ", you can no longer export the
contents of that folder or checkout its parent folder on Windows.
Suppose you have following structure:
Rename "ChildFolder" to "ChildFolder ", then try to check out or export
ParentFolder. Checkout will fail because subversion would not be able to
create "ChildFolder " on Windows machine. Export will fail because,
Windows will automatically remove the last space and create the folder
with name "ChildFolder" instead of "ChildFolder " while exporting the
contents, resulting again, in the failure of operation.
I suppose this problem is specific to Windows OS only?
