Path canonicalization assertion failure triggered by add_dir_recursively()

I detected this problem while running 'make check-javahl'. The
BasicTests.testBasicAddIgnores() test creates the following working
copy, and triggers this assertion failure.

$ ls -la /home/dlr/src/subversion/working_copies/basic_test1/dir
total 8
drwxrwxr-x 2 dlr dlr 4096 Oct 27 16:51 ./
drwxrwxr-x 5 dlr dlr 4096 Oct 27 16:20 ../
-rw-rw-r-- 1 dlr dlr 0 Oct 27 16:20 foo.c
-rw-rw-r-- 1 dlr dlr 0 Oct 27 16:20 foo.o

$ svn add /home/dlr/src/subversion/working_copies/basic_test1/dir
A /home/dlr/src/subversion/working_copies/basic_test1/dir
svn: subversion/libsvn_subr/path.c:377: svn_path_basename: Assertion `is_canonical (path, len)' failed.

The stack trace is as follows:

The error occurs because "." is passed to svn_wc_is_adm_dir(), which
eventually triggers the is_canonical() assertion failure in
svn_path_basename(). add_dir_recursive(), the caller of
svn_wc_is_adm_dir(), contains code which filters out empty, parent,
and "." paths, but that code isn't executed in time.

The attached patch corrects this misbehavior (I'll commit it for the
time being), but while looking through svn_io.h, I noticed that there
are some functions which declare similar filtering behavior
(e.g. svn_io_get_dirents2). Would someone familiar with this code
please comment on whether one of these alternate functions would be
more appropriate? Thanks!
