Show log fails on file repository with log caching enabled - More Info

I created a share on a Virtual PC and was able to access the share using the
  \\w2k-pc\software\svnrepos
Syntax.

Then created a repository using TSVN on that share.

I inserted a couple of files into the repository and then did a show log with log caching enabled.
That worked for me.

I then edited the "entries" file in the .svn folder of my working copy and changed:
  file:///\x5cWd-fs  to file://Wd-fs

That makes the log caching work.

Then I did a new checkout of the top level folder, and now the properties show the
base of the working folder to be file://Wd-fs

I don't know why that changed, since when I did a checkout using TSVN 1.5 earlier the
path read file:///\Wd-fs.

When I started using TSVN back in version 1.3 I had trouble getting the syntax right for
accessing a repository on a shared folder.  I remember trying several things and eventually
finding an example on the net somewhere using the file:///\ prefix, which worked fine for
me (and everyone else using our repository) until the log caching.

I'll put together a quick and dirty utility to fixup the folder prefixes in working copies
and see how it goes.

Thanks,
Steve
