perl swig bindings: status on "."

From: Miller, Eric <Eric.Miller_at_amd.com>

Since we have some guys looking at the perl bindings, here is a simple


When svn_path_basename is called during a svn_client_status call it can
barf on '.' and core dumps the interpreter.

perl: subversion/libsvn_subr/path.c:377: svn_path_basename: Assertion
`is_canonical(path, len)' failed.


As outlined in past discussions I found, the code fails because the
canonical version of '.' is '' (empty string) and for some reason that
path is not getting canonicalized before being passed.


The simple thing to do would be to map '.' to '' before
svn_client_status (or status2) is called, since changing the api
directly seems to be a source of contention (at least it was 2 years ago
:-) ).





PS. Support for status2, lock, and unlock would be cool too :-)
