Couldn't determine absolute path

I have Subversion installed on Windows Server 2003 along with Apache
2.2. Most operations appear to work fine except the copy/move
operation. I get the following error from Subversion:


   svn: Couldn't determine absolute path of


There are similar errors in the Apache log file:


   Couldn't determine absolute path of
'\\\\network_files\\dir\\svn\\repo' [500, #125001]


I have the repository databases stored on our network. My understanding
is that this is okay as long as you use fsfs, which I did. I got this
working on another Subversion installation a few months ago with a
different repository. In fact, when I point the older Subversion system
at the newer repository, the move command works fine. But when I try to
point the new Subversion box that older repository, I get the same
error. That being the case, I don't think it's a permission thing on
the file system, I think it's a Subversion or Apache configuration
issue, I just don't know what.


I saw similar posts here:





but no responses to them. Any help would be greatly appreciated. See
