bug: svn info [great [great [great]] grand] parent directory paths

From: Matthew Baker <mbaker_at_itrsgroup.com>
Date: 2005-06-22 14:17:32 CEST

I've had a search and I can't find an issue dealing with this. If it's
been mentioned already then I'm sorry...

svn info doesn't seem to behave properly when multiple ../ are used. It
also behaves differently on windows and unix (Solaris)

Examples follow:

I have omitted everything but the path svn info reports to save space.
If you need any more info or can't reproduce it then let me know.

Cheers,

Matt.
