Somehow, this fell through the cracks, and was not reported to APR as
it should have been. So it came back to this list later, in another
report (unfortunately still not forwarded to APR):

    https://lists.apache.org/thread.html/4797303a065e9c1091bbf445acaa3121ccb27ac2d661eb0debd1cf40%40%3Cdev.subversion.apache.org%3E

Anyway, I've forwarded this thread to dev_at_apr last week, where it is
currently being discussed:

    https://lists.apache.org/thread.html/r28e478074055436b27b13f7487203448079aea5adfe4207007ad7ea9%40%3Cdev.apr.apache.org%3E

We know now that the problem isn't specific to the use of "subst", but
actually to all "working copies on drive roots", so also when you
perform a checkout to C:\ for example.
Probably also with "shared folders" over the network, when the
wc-root is the share-root, as was just reported to TSVN here:
