I looked at the win32 apr_filepath code and it looks like it can deal
with '/' separators, but I don't know how guaranteed that is.

It seems wrong to put an apr err in the src_err field. We do it in a
few other places (in time.c and path.c; Nuutti says he copied this code
from path.c), but not most of the time.

I'm starting to become convinced that src_err should just go away. When
you're looking at an error structure, you don't know what namespace
src_err lives in (the comment claims it might be an "errno, h_errno,
etc."). handle_error does nothing with it.

In the meantime, I think this error should either be
"(SVN_ERR_BAD_FILENAME, 0" or "(apr_err, 0".
