Not really, I thought I'd reinvent the wheel :) Fixed in this patch.

I added code to convert the canonicalize the URL when read from the entries
file, to remain backwards compatible. I found it difficult to add an extra
test for this behaviour though. How is backwards compatibility for svn
tested anyway?

The patch is tested on windows + svn, http & local.
