Re: URL does not exist

When I commit, save, and exit:

svn: URL 'Directory Name' does not exist
svn: Your commit message was left in a temporary file:
svn: 'svn-commit.tmp'

trying %2520:

svn: URL 'Directory%20Name' does not exist
svn: Your commit message was left in a temporary file:
svn: 'svn-commit.2.tmp'

I don't know how that would have come to pass if you didn't mean for that to occur, but perhaps RapidSVN does not properly handle items whose names contain spaces.
