Hi Nir,

Thanks for the report. I believe this crash is specific to TortoiseSVN
(so maybe you can also report it on the Tortoise mailinglist [1]).
More specifically, with the commandline I also get strange behavior,
but not a crash:

1) When I try this with commandline 1.7.9, I get some strange behavior
that notifies an "Exists" notification (E), but doesn't really
checkout the directory. See below [2]. This is obviously a bug, but it
doesn't crash. It seems this is very much like this issue: (svn crashes
when checking out subdirectories with backslashes in their names),
which is fixed in 1.8.0, but see below.

2) When I try this with commandline 1.8.0 (to be released in a couple
of days), I get a nice error, but the output isn't exactly right. It

C:\Temp\svntest18>svn --version -q

C:\Temp\svntest18>svnadmin create repos

C:\Temp\svntest18>svn co file:///c:/temp/svntest18/repos wc
Checked out revision 0.

C:\Temp\svntest18>svn mkdir -mm "file:///c:/temp/svntest18/repos/E:"

Committed revision 1.

C:\Temp\svntest18>svn up wc
Updating 'wc':
svn: E155000: '.' is not valid as filename in directory 'C:\Temp\svntest18\wc'

So instead of 'E:' it says '.'. But it's already much better than 1.7.
I'll check if I can find out why it doesn't report the correct invalid


[2] With 1.7.9 I get the following:

C:\Temp\svntest>svnadmin create repos

C:\Temp\svntest>svn co file:///c:/temp/svntest/repos wc
Checked out revision 0.

C:\Temp\svntest>cd wc

C:\Temp\svntest\wc>cd ..

C:\Temp\svntest>svn mkdir -mm "file:///c:/temp/svntest/repos/E:"

Committed revision 1.

C:\Temp\svntest>svn ls file:///c:/temp/svntest/repos

C:\Temp\svntest>svn up wc
Updating 'wc':
E    wc
Updated to revision 1.

C:\Temp\svntest>cd wc
