Other than the aborting part, which I took to mean there was a crash? Since
when can you do this? AFAIK, there are no Subversion commands that will
operate on two paths unless the common parent is also part of the same WC,
which I did not take to be the case here.

I'd love to be wrong, because we desperately need the commands to support
this in Subclipse. I keep wanting Paul Burba to work on that for me, but he
has not had enough free time to start.
