absolute paths in password-db in svnserve.conf on Win32 don't work

Hi,

I tried to use an abolute path for the password-db property in
svnserve.conf:
password-db = C:\Secure\pw

According to the template conf file, this should be possible.

However, accessing the repo fails, saying it cannot open the file
"C:/Repo/conf/C:\Secure\pw

Looking through the code, it seems svnserve uses svn_path_join to
concatenate the conf path with the password-db value, without converting
os-specific delimiters, or minding that C:\ represents an absolute path.
(it only checks to see if it starts with a '/')

Is there any way to use absolute paths?

svnserve v1.0.5, Win2K (but seems to be wrong in trunk too)

Regards,

Roel Harbers
