Problem in 1.3.0 RC-6

I have encountered a problem in 1.3.0 RC-6. I will explain the problem
and let you all decide how serious it is. I do not think it will pose any
problems for the command line, but it may very well pose problems for
bindings and other clients.

The problem is in the svn status -u output via DAV.

I initially suspected the problem was caused by the change in r17589 which
was backported to 1.3.0 in r17593, because that was a fix for a similar
problem. My colleague Paul Burba confirmed the problem in debug of RC-6
and the command line. However, he has also rebuilt RC-4 and confirmed
that it has the same problem. So whatever the cause of the problem, it
appears it has existed in 1.3.0 all along.

Anyway, the problem is that the URL that represents the item in the
repository and is passed back in the status structure is "corrupted".
Occasionally it has the right value, most often it has an empty string but
sometimes it has a partial string or even a valid URL of a different item.

This causes problems in Subclipse via the JavaHL bindings. I did not spot
this before because we only reference the URL when you want to do a
compare and I did not test that. The change in r17589 was fixing a
problem where the lastChangedRevision was not correct. That is more
visible in the UI in Subclipse so I based my testing off that.

Like I said, I do not think the URL is used by the CLI but it is there in
the structure so might effect other apps that use it.

Paul Burba is building 1.2.x so that he can see if it had this problem or
not. I will let him post what he discovers.
