Trying to do a checkout of trunk on Windows using tortoiseSVN fails:

Can't check path 'C:\pd_from_svn\externals\gridflow\abstractions\inv*.pd': 
filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.

I am left with a partial checkout, not sure how many files are missing.
I can't get the remaining files because tortoise can't get past inv*.pd and 
there is apparently no mechanism to ignore files. (You can have it ignore 
files so they won't be committed but the only way to filter a checkout seems 
to be to specify individual directories, so I would have to individually 
checkout every directory in /externals except for gridflow)

Maybe someone could rename inv*.pd, or recommend another svn client that 
works better?
