If I do that (for add), from a fresh starting point, it says:
Error 'C:\My\Project\AccessPoint' is already under version control
and C:\My\Project\AccessPoint gets the property:
svn:special (Value = *)
and the Subversion part of the Windows Properties window for C:\My\Project\AccessPoint displays the following curious fields:
URL : //path/to/repository/My/Project/Access/Point
Text Status: obstructed
and C:\My\Project\AccessPoint is not added, and D:\Separate\Folder does not content an .svn folder
On the other hand, I cannot add D:\Separate\Folder directly from there, as Tortoise does not see that it's linked to C:\My\Project\AccessPoint (the context menus does not provide the add entry)
