Bug exporting to root (e.g. Flash drive), SVN 1.6.2 and earlier

What I did: Having tagged the current release, I want to export it to a
flash drive in order to install on a non-networked PC. Using Windows
Explorer, I browse to the root of the flash drive (F:, in this case),
right-click and choose Tortoise SVN, Export. The resulting dialog box
correctly has the location of the most-recently-tagged release in the
repository, but the Export Directory that it builds is
"F:\\Release_0.8". If I fail to notice the double "\" characters, and
say OK, I get a warning, "This is not a valid path!".
How I fix it: Manually editing the Export directory to change "\\" to
"\" fixes the problem.
Severity: This is a minor "cosmetic" bug. It does generate a
reproducible error (that it doesn't need to generate), but also suggests
how the user can fix it. It would be "nice" if the software took the
pre-emptive strike of not generating the error condition.
Suggested Fix: Recognize when the user requests the root of a drive and
don't put in a double back-slash, just a single one.
