[Buildbot-devel] SVN Check Fail On Windows

I am new to buildbot so my apologies if this is a newb question.  I am
setting up buildbot, and for testing purposes thus far my only builder
does a svn checkout.  Unfortunately, the master is reporting the
checkout is failing for the following reason from the Windows slave I
have setup:

C:\Program' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

It appears that the following command is being executed from the report:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe /c C:\Program Files\Subversion\bin\svn.EXE
checkout --revision HEAD --non-interactive https://myurl/svn/Utiltrunk

Out of curiosity, I tried to execute the following from a windows command line:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe /c C:\Program Files\Subversion\bin\svn.EXE

And I received the same error message.  It seems as though the
arguments passed to cmd.exe need to be enclosed in quotes.

My first guess would be that I have the buildbot.steps.source.SVN
instance configured incorrectly in my master.cfg file as this is my
first setup.  The code for this is:
source = SVN(  baseURL='https://myurl/svn/Util',

Any help would be appreciated, and I again apologize if I am missing
something simple in my setup.  I have only been using buildbot for
about 2 hours.
