Hey! I already wrote exactly the same patch! But I didn't propose it
upstream because I was unable to reproduce the bug.

I had this issue already twice, but later (after a reboot? I don't
remember) it worked again (without the patch). It might be related to an
upgrade of TortoiseSVN (try to upgrade TortoiseSVN without rebooting).

""c:\path\to\subwcrev.exe" arg1 arg2 ..." just works. I don't understand
why (strange syntax), but it works :-)

When I had the problem, it worked with extra quotes, but not without. It
is strange because the program ("c:\path\to\subwcrev.exe") existed!?
