Hi Mathias,

Sorry for the late response, and thanks for reporting this. It's not
clear at the moment whether this is a bug in svn itself, or in
TortoiseSVN (by not correctly canonicalizing the input, before handing
it to the svn libraries).

Do you know if any strange input might be playing a role here? Is the
directory you're acting upon in some strange format, or ... ?
Also: what checkboxes did you have checked when running this 'cleanup'?
And another thought: if the working copy contains svn:externals
definitions, and you have the "include externals" checkbox checked,
maybe those externals are the culprit? Any strangely formatted
externals, or ...?
