Sorry if I wasn't clear. I was trying to get the repo on my C: drive.
Here's the same with more context:

samg@PC0213 /cygdrive/c/temp/svn
$ pwd

samg@PC0213 /cygdrive/c/temp/svn
$ svn co --username anonsvn test
Authentication realm: <>
Document repository Password for 'anonsvn': *******

assertion "svn_dirent_is_canonical(base, pool)" failed: file
line 1053, function: svn_dirent_join_many Aborted (core dumped)

But I also get the error with other svn commands that need the
server (e.g. log). Command "svn status" does not give an error. The only
kind of similar error messages I found on the web say something about
not using a trailing slash with the URL. Not the problem in my case.

Cygcheck output attached. Slightly edited because this is on my work pc
and sysadmins don't like sharing much specifics. Not sure if they let
me do much debugging there and I don't have any Windows at home. I
appreciate any hints that might get this working again.
