TortoiseSVN bug: Browser uses http:// redirects even though the repo is using svn://

Greetings. A bug report is what I bring!

TortoiseSVN's Browser apparently uses HTTP to determine if the repo hasn't moved, but at times it may only seem to.

The site at http://myserver.com/ is temporarily redirected to http://myserver.com/somepage/else.php for reasons. All other files, http://myserver.com/image.gif and stuff, remain in place, just the front page is redirected. I believe this to be common practice for maintenance, special events, etc.

However, svn://myserver.com is completely unfazed by the redirect. The daemon sits on its port and the repos are where they should be, svn://myserver.com/myrepo1/project/branches/whatever.

Now, when trying to browse svn://myserver.com, I get informed that my repo is moved to svn://myserver.com/somepage/else.php ! Now what business does TSVN have asking my HTTP server about moving, and if it does have a business, shouldn't it ask me whether its guess is correct, or whether I insist on it using the original address? (Which is valid, and the redirected is not, of course.)
