Re: Subversion 1.5 beta1, "malformed URL for repository" when merging over http

Here's a transcript of my session, get ready, it's really short!

> C:\Projects\Hegemony.rick3>svn merge -r8838:HEAD http://bender.ldastore.com/svn/Hegemony/trunk
> svn: Malformed URL for repository

When I use Tortoise, it shows that it's transferred 181 kBytes before it
sends that error message.

The Hegemony.rick3 folder is a clean checkout of my branch. Like I said
before, it works fine if I add my username, for some bizarre reason.

If I get time I'll try to do some detective work to track it down.
