Hi Holger.

First, please note that you should post questions about using Subversion
(including using the libraries) to the "users@" mailing list, not this
one; see <http://subversion.tigris.org/mailing-lists.html>.

However, I can guess the answer to this one.

Yes: it looks like the argument to check_path() is supposed to be a
relative path, which should not start with a '/' character. Even if
version 1.4.6 allowed it, it was not correct, and version 1.5.x has this
new check to catch the error.

I hope that helps. If you have further questions, please email
