It might be a bit more complicated than that.

The command line client has code to auto-escape command line URLs.
svn_client_args_to_target_array() calls svn_opt__arg_canonicalize_url.
The client should automatically convert spaces to %20.

The error message shows an ra_neon (or ra_serf?) error while failing to
parse a bc URL from the server.  I think that means the client has
correctly escaped the space and that the error is occurring later.  I
suppose manually escaping the space might be sufficient to make it work,
but it is possible that it will not and that a client/server upgrade is
required.
