Yes, we don't like it when someone tries to trick us ;)

Depends on what you think is a bug:
TSVN knows that you've selected all the files in the commit dialog, so
to speed things up and to work around many bugs in Subversion with
non-recursive commits it tries to commit the parent folder of all the
selected files (which, usually, _is_ a working copy. It usually is the
working copy root). But in your case, the 'parent folder' of those three
folders is C:\ (the common root). And that's not a working copy. That's
why you get that error.

Workaround: change a file you _don't_ want to commit and deselect that
from being committed. Then it should work. Unless of course you hit one
of the Subversion glitches with non-recursive commits.
