Thanks, that works and so did svnsync. Kind of too bad though,
because it does not help me in terms of knowing why the tests are

FWIW, I do not agree with you on the syntax though.


Has always worked on Windows to access C:\foo

The drive letter was only needed to access other drives. This is a
behavior change that either needs to be fixed or documented. It will
absolutely break things on Windows.
