Thanks for your work on Subversion.
It crashed on my Win7 Pro SP1 machine (12 core Xeon5690, 48GB)
while trying to connect for the first time to a new head.

My name is more than 8 chars long, so it gets remapped with a ~1.
(The 8.3 file naming format -- with all its problems -- is now old enough
to collect Social Security. It cannot die soon enough for me.)
Of course there is no such actual directory, so we get the error message

'C:\Users\lngnam~1\AppData\Local\Temp' is not a working copy

Then the crash:

Subversion Exception!
Subversion encountered a serious problem.
Please take the time to report this on the Subversion mailing list
with as much information as possible about what
you were trying to do.
But please first search the mailing list archives for the error message
to avoid reporting the same problem repeatedly.
