Thanks for the report. However, this has already been fixed in trunk:


r1548480 | philip | 2013-12-06 10:01:17 +0000 (Fri, 06 Dec 2013) | 11 lines

* subversion/libsvn_subr/path.c
  (svn_path_splitext): Fixed correct pointer comparison to NULL to check
  for end of string, instead of checking if the character itself was NULL.
  The only output change is that a pool allocated "" is now a static "".

* subversion/tests/libsvn_subr/path-test.c
  (test_path_splitext): New case.

Patch by: eric{_AT_}lubin.us

According to that log message, the only difference it makes is a small
difference in memory allocation. In that case, there wouldn't be much
reason to back-port it to released versions.
