Subject Re: SVN and NTFS - illegal character ':' in filename
Date Tue, 23 Mar 2010 15:04:07 GMT

it's not a file I put into SVN that causes the problem - it seems that SVN attached a kind
of time stamp for one of its book keeping files in the .svn folder.

So I cannot use your solution.

Best regards
