SVN and NTFS - illegal character ':' in filename

Hi,

I'm using SVN (client side) on a Win7 64bit box with NTFS. I've got an issue when SVN tried to create a (SVN-system-file) named "locations-fit (10.08.09 09:52).js.svn-base".

On NTFS a ':' marks an "alternate data stream", so a "svn update" produces an file system error.

Is there a way to tell SVN not to use such file names?

Best regards
Mark.
