I encountered a test failure of externals_tests.py#8 (error if
external target dir involves '.' or '..').

FAIL: externals_tests.py 8: error if external target dir involves '.' or '..'

Running on Windows XP (32 bit), a (shared) release build with VS 2010 SP1.

This happened with ra_local (with fsfs). All other tests over ra_local
succeeded. Test runs with svnserve and dav_svn also completed all
tests successfully.

I'm running the tests non-parallellized, and with cleanup, on a
ramdisk in a subdirectory (R:\test). This is the command I'm using:

    python win-tests.py -c --release R:\test

Of course, as usual, I cannot reproduce it (sigh). I've rerun the
entire externals_tests.py a couple of times (and #8 some more), but
nothing. Now running the entire suite again over ra_local.

I have no reason to believe anything weird happened on my system
(machine has been rock stable for 7+ years), so I'm at a loss here. I
don't see the error anymore, but it did happen (and I'm a bit
skeptical of accepting "cosmic radiation" as an explanation).

If anyone else (ever) sees this, that would be cool (or not). I'm
continuing to try to reproduce it. If anyone has any idea ...
