Problem checking out in windows a file with an invalid syntax

Hi all,

we have this problem checking out a file with an invalid syntax (in
windows), using tortoise but I think the problem doesn't depend on
that specific client.

Here it is the specific error message:
Error: Can't check path
'R:\path\to\file\*.dep': The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.

then the update or check out operation fails.

Note that this doesn't seem a problem in linux, since that file syntax
is valid in linux.

Note also that the '*.dep' file has been already removed from the
repository, as it was the residual of a make distclean rule which
missed to remove that file.

I googled around but with no luck, so my question is: there is some
way to fix the problem, maybe acting on the repository?

We also tried to completely remove the checked out dir and check out
it from scratch, but with the same result.

Many thanks in advance, regards.
