Problem checking out when # in URL

I am looking into the possibility of us using Subversion for our source
control and I have encountered a problem using the “svn checkout” command to
checkout from a URL with a # character. I also have tortoiseSVN install and
I do not seem to encounter this problem when I checkout using tortoise. The
only difference I can see is that the version of subversion is 1.6.13 for
the command line client I have installed and the version of subversion is
1.6.12 on the tortoise client I have installed. The error I am seeing is
shown below. Could you please let me know if you are aware of any problems
using the # character in filenames or have any idea what could be causing

C:\ >svn checkout "http://svn.xxxxx.com/svn/its-support/C#Apps"
"C:\Documents and Settings\C_Warren\My Documents\TestCheckout"

svn: Server sent unexpected return value (400 Bad Request) in response to
OPTIONS request for 'http://svn.xxxxxx.com/svn/its-support/C#Apps'

Kind regards,
