We've handled this like this:
if the dialog is started from the working copy, then the local path is used
otherwise the url is used (e.g. in the repo browser).

I don't want to change this. And it doesn't really matter for this
thread because that's a different issue.

There will alway be situations where the shortened url is not
sufficient. It's shortened, which means there is information removed,
which in turn means it can not be enough in all situations.
Dropping the host name is not an option: try two projects on Google
code, both with /trunk/src.
