svn data corruption error message actually causing by the length of the path?

I see a svn data corruption error in Winodws but not sure if it is true or
not. Can someone confirm if it is really data corruption error or just
windows path length issue?

The whole address of the directory (over 252 chars):


Here is the command causing the problem and its output:

C:\works>svn co http://svn/product product

svn: Your .svn/tmp directory may be missing or corrupt; run 'svn cleanup'
and try again
svn: Can't open file
transitions_base_waveforms_37usTg_70Vg_16Vs_12x20ms_wdt.lut.svn-base': The
system cannot find the pa
th specified.

If I go down a few level and execute the command in a different way, then
there is no error:

C:\works>svn co http://svn/product/people people

Thank you.
