Fixed in r10480 and nominated for backport to 1.1. I only fixed the
problem on the way into the changed-path data, not on the way out;
existing repositories where non-canonical copyfrom paths have crept into
the changed-path entries will have to be dumped and loaded in order to
be fixed.

(The problem seems fairly harmless to me; if it's a big deal, we could
add code to canonicalize copyfrom data as it is read from the
changed-path entries. Certainly, I would have done that if we had
already hit 1.1 with this bug, or if the problem had severe
repercussions.)
