Thanks for the explanation, Steve.

I wonder if this information could be obtained in another way. If I
clicked on the file in my working copy and did a show log then the file
is guaranteed to exist in the WC. Is there a way TortoiseSVN could
optimize for this case, so it could work as easily as the command line
client? In other words, if Show Dialog is called from a working copy,
then use just the local working copy filename direcly instead of the
full path (as I understand your explanation of the difference to be).

I had tried this before posting but it had the same error. If I right
click a file in my WC, choose TortoiseSVN -> Merge, I get, a From: url
of, e.g.:

Changing this to just mergeme.txt doesn't work. How can I make it use
"working copy paths" ?

The only way I could get the merge to work was to look through the
history, and manually type in the full original path of the file
(file:///C:/mergeme.txt) for it to work. In my real use-case this is a
very long path.

Am I doing something wrong?

As always, thanks for your excellent work!
