Command line relative paths

SVN 1.1 rc 1
Win 2000

I normally use Tortoise SVN as my client interface but in order to do a WC
copy with rename I am using the Windows CL interface. I am having problems
using relative path names in the 'svn cp' command. In order to investigate I
tried 'svn ls' with the results as listed below:

C:\Documents and Settings\Vincent Thornley\My Documents\Versioned Working
Copies\Design\integration\MatLab Step 05\test\Windows MatLab>svn ls
Data Server/
RunTestScript.m
build.opts
makefile.m

C:\Documents and Settings\Vincent Thornley\My Documents\Versioned Working
Copies\Design\integration\MatLab Step 05\test\Windows MatLab>svn ls ..
Windows MatLab/
input/

C:\Documents and Settings\Vincent Thornley\My Documents\Versioned Working
Copies\Design\integration\MatLab Step 05\test\Windows MatLab>svn ls ../..
source/
test/

C:\Documents and Settings\Vincent Thornley\My Documents\Versioned Working
Copies\Design\integration\MatLab Step 05\test\Windows MatLab>svn ls ../../..
Windows MatLab/
input/

C:\Documents and Settings\Vincent Thornley\My Documents\Versioned Working
Copies\Design\integration\MatLab Step 05\test\Windows MatLab>svn ls
../../../..
source/
test/

C:\Documents and Settings\Vincent Thornley\My Documents\Versioned Working
Copies\Design\integration\MatLab Step 05\test\Windows MatLab>

The root of the working copy is 'Design' folder.

It appears that the .. relative path is "wrapping around" two levels without
going further up the tree. Is this a spaces in paths problem? Any other
suggestions?
