Minor bug: Checkout doesn't accept forward slashes in the checkout directory path

Using TortoiseSVN 1.4.7, Build 11792 - 32 Bit , 2008/01/05 13:50:18 I'm trying to use a forward slash in the "checkout directory" text field. When hitting OK a warning shows up, saying:

  This is not a valid path!
  A valid path must not contain '|"?*:' or one of the following device names:
  com1-com9, lpt1-lpt9, prn, aux, con, nul, clock$

This is triggered by a / in the path (and goes away if I use a \ instead), but it does not mention '/' as invalid character. Which is correct BTW., as forward and backward slashes can be used interchangeably as directory separators since DOS 2.0 or so, so '/' actually is a valid character.

The bug is not critical at all, as an obvious and reliable workaround exists (use '\' instead). Nevertheless it is annoying, as it inhibits copy&pasting more than one dirname from the repository URL.

Happy bug hunting,
