Definitely undesirable, and thank you for tracing the problem into the
code. I'm testing the patch below right now; if it passes the
regression tests, I'll commit it.

* subversion/svn/log-cmd.c
  (log_entry_receiver_xml): Don't double-escape the copyfrom_path;
    svn_xml_make_open_tag will escape it anyway.
