I really think that we should do the 'API-rev dance' here, sorry.
Before this patch you could call this function, to get the properties for a path 'path', and then do an apr_hash_get(result, "path", APR_HASH_KEY_STRING) and you would get the property for your path.
After this patch you get NULL, because you receive a hashtable with as key for the file like "/some/long/longer/path".
I think this is going to break *a lot* of clients that use our api or that pass relative "../style" paths to svn.
We should probably do the full conversion for a deprecation wrapper instead of only 'similar' relative paths, by joining the originally passed anchor back to the relative paths of the results.
