I was maybe a bit terse when I mentioned "test suite features".

For the record: apparently the test backported in r1538135 depended on
svntest.actions.run_and_verify_checkout being able to handle None as
expected working copy, which seems to be a new feature of the test
suite in 1.8+.

Bert has already fixed the test and nominated for backport [1], and
Ben even called out the fact that it would be a good idea to vote for
it before cutting the 1.7.14 release [2] (sorry ... didn't get to it).
