I do not think it is an issue of C:\ vs. C:/. Internally, all paths
are converted to the latter before calling the API anyway.
Subversion's API requires this. The issue more likely is that a
relative path is being used in one scenario and an absolute in the
other. I am a little surprised it would ever use a relative path in
Subclipse though as we have no control over the CWD.

So consider me perplexed.

Are you using JavaHL or SVNKit?
