> When calling Subversion with relative paths there is a limit of 255 characters to the
path length. If you call Subversion with an absolute path that no longer applies and you now
have access to 32K chars. I have tried this myself and it does work. Try feeding SVN a path
that is relative and is over 255 chars. It will not be able to complete the transaction. Now,
try to the same path again only as an absolute path and it will successfully complete the
> This bug was originally fixed for the update command, but still remains for the checkout
command. There may be other command that are affected by this bug.
