Hi Tomaz, 

Thank you for the suggestion. It is still a work-around (because there can be 
no space in the path), but it is not as bad as my hack in twisted. 

I've tried it, it works, and I can use SVNPoller with an unmodified version 
of buildbot and twisted, so I'm quite happy. 

It would obviously be better if the default value of svnbin actually had a 
chance to work on windows, but I do not know how to fix this in the 
twisted/buildbot source code. If anyone has a suggestion that does not mean 
to much work, I will give it a try.
