Yeah, we've kinda been around this before. Obviously, if you are
dealing with a repository that's on the same drive as the working
copy, you should just omit the drive letter and colon altogether. As
far as accessing across drives go, I'm not sure where the conversation
last left off. We may have to code around that, but I think the key
lies in somewhere in APR.

Ouch. Keep in mind that we fully support Windows-style filenames
where Windows-style filenames are used. It's where URLs are used that
things get a bit hairy.

I am not aware of that problem being resolved. I'll check it after
sending this mail, and if you *don't* read otherwise, assume it still
does not work for me. :-)
