If the problem is that you type in something like:

git svn clone svn.repo

have you tried:

git svn clone 'svn.repo '

put the repo name inside ' marks and put in the trailing blank. If you
want a equivalent, but more esoteric command:

git svc clone svn.repo\

with a space after the \ (aka back slash, technically a "reverse
solidus". FWIW the real name of the / is not "slash" but "solidus".
Weird the things I find.)
