svn ci aborts when crossing root directory

I posted this on svn.users before, unfortunately without any result, so I'll try here:

I'm running an entire SuSE 9.3 file system (with suitable ignores, of course) under svn 1.4.2, i.e. I have essentially checked out an empty repository directory to / and added most of the tree. This works quite well, except for one thing, which seems to be a bug in svn:

   svn ci path1 path2

works fine ONLY if path1 and path2 are in the same subtree, e.g. both under /var. If one is under /var and the other under /usr, then svn says


The same happens if one is a file in /, like

   svn ci path1 /filename


   svn ci /

works fine, but usually I'd like to be more selective...

Apparently, svn tries to walk the tree from one path to the other, and it aborts if it encounters the root directory. Would you be able to fix this? I'd be glad to test a patch.

Thank you for a very fine tool!
