BUG (?) with file URL

From: Paul <alabamapaul_at_gmail.com>

I looked at the TSVN issue tracker, and did not see anything like this...

I have a USB flash drive that I use for my projects.
I have the following directories on this drive:
  \svn-repos\apps my Subversion repository
  \project001\wc my WC of the trunk of a project in the repository.

The drive letter that is assigned to the drive changes depending on
the computer I am using. So, when I created my WC using the command
line, I did not specify a drive letter as part of the file URL.
Now, I cannot get TSVN to do anything that requires access the repository.

Using v1.4.2 of the Subversion command line client, I created the
local WC using the following command:
  svn checkout file:///svn-repos/apps/project001/trunk \project001\wc

Now, if I try to use TSVN (v1.4.3 Build 8645) to do an SVN Update (or
anything that requires connecting to the repository), I receive the
following error:
Unable to open an ra_local session to URL
Unable to open repository 'file:///svn-repos/apps/project001/trunk'

With the command line client installed, assuming you have a "\TEMP"
directory, use, open a command prompt and use the following commands:
   svnadmin create \temp\tsvn_bug_repo
   svn mkdir file:///temp/tsvn_bug_repo/newdir -m "Creating a directory"
   mkdir \temp\tsvn_bug_wc
   svn checkout file:///temp/tsvn_bug_repo/newdir \temp\tsvn_bug_wc
   svn info \temp\tsvn_bug_wc

Now, use TSVN to navigate to \TEMP, right click on tsvn_bug_wc, and
select SVN Update.

Is this a bug with TSVN, or is the SVN command line accepting an invalid URL ?

Any help would be appreciated.
I know I can work around this by using SUBST to remap the USB flash
drive to a consistent drive letter for all systems, but if this is a
TSVN bug I wanted to let the developers know about it.
