The only case that is really odd is if you access the repository on a
network share using UNC file paths. If your repos is on //server/repos
and you want to use file:/// access then the URL is:

file:///\server/repos

or if you are good at counting slashes, TSVN also accepts:

file://///server/repos

<don't sue me warning>
Don't try this with a BDB repository; it will break the file locking
mechanism and cause corruption.

BTW. Using file:// doesn't work on the CLI either. It has always needed
a triple slash AFAIK.
