Show log fails on file repository with log caching enabled

I have been using TortoiseSVN since version 1.3.x.
The paths I have been using to access file repositories have been of the form:

  file:///\W2k-vm/software/svnrepos

Looking at the "entries" file these are mapped to:

  file:///\x5cW2k-vm/software/svnrepos

Newer versions of TortoiseSVN support a path to the same repository as:

  file://W2k-vm/software/svnrepos

To reproduce the error with log caching on working copies that use the old form:

  Edit the "entries" file in an .svn folder

  Change "file://" to "file:///\" on two lines (5 and 6 in my files).

After this change:

  "Show log" with log caching turned on - gives error.

  "Show log" with log caching turned off - does not give error

  I am a software developer.  I know that sometimes the hardest thing to do is
to reproduce a problem.

Regards,
Steve
