Assertion in svn_uri_is_canonical

Passing an invalid URL to svn co causes an abort and core dump. This
fails with all protocols
http, svn, file. It occurs with all versions I tested (1.7.5, 1.7.11,
1.7.12, 1.8.1, and the now defunct 1.8.2)
It occurs with multiple subcommand (ls, info, etc.) It happens on both
unix and windows platforms.
The "abort" is especially bad on Windows since it will pop open a dialog
window due to the abort.

It is expected that the command line would return an appropriate user
friendly error message
instead of crashing when faced with invalid input.

./svn co file://./test
svn: subversion/libsvn_subr/dirent_uri.c:1315: svn_uri_basename: Assertion
`svn_uri_is_canonical(uri, ((void *)0))' failed.
Abort (core dumped)

./svn --version
