Strange error message with svn info

From: Paul Gross <paul_at_grosss.net>

I noticed that "svn info URL" gives a strange error message on Windows.

>svn info "http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/"
svn: Can't check path 'http:\\svn.collab.net\repos\svn': The filename,
directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.

This was pretty cryptic to me (especially with the reversing of the
slashes), and it wasn't until I tried it on FreeBSD that I realized the

% svn info "http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/"
svn: 'http://svn.collab.net/repos' is not a working copy

Is it possible to make the windows error message match the FreeBSD
one? Thanks.


ps. Both versions are 0.37.0 (r8509)
