It has nothing to do with full paths. Believe me: I know the
Subversion API and how to use it.
Sure, as long as you only select files you're good to go. But just one
folder in the selection and you then must commit non-recursively
(otherwise you would automatically commit all files and folder within
that folder too).

Refresh doesn't mean we do an update, it only means we're fetching the
status of the files again because we've detected that one or more
files have changed since the selection was made.
