Hrm... I wonder if svn_ra_local__reparent() is to blame for this problem.
It does this:

                    svn_path_uri_decode(url + strlen(baton->repos_url),

But in the case where we are asking to reparent to the same URL we were
already at, won't that result in an empty fs_path? This function should be
checking the result for emptiness, and making sure that fs_path has a
leading slash.
