The empty string is a valid filesystem path, although not one we can
currently lock. The documentation for svn_fs_access_t is wrong here,
it states the lock_tokens hash stores a mapping of UUID-->1 but it
really stores UUID-->path where path can be the magic value 1. At
present our backend does not check explicilty check the path but if a
backend did check the path then changing the magic 1 to an empty string
is probably the wrong thing to do.

I wonder if we should be checking the path? The modified test below
still passes, is that what we want?
