Strange error message

I don't think this is a bug, but it's definitely a misleading error message.

Client is 1.1.1 on XP Pro, server is 1.0.6 on Server 2003 running as
mod_dav_svn.

I didn't really think this would work (tho it would be cool if it did, even
better as -r prev:806), but I got a very non-intuitive error message:

$ svn diff -r 806:prev
http://marduk:88/svn/Web_Projects/.../SetChangePassword.aspx.cs
svn: Can't check path
'http:\\marduk:88\svn\Web_Projects\...\SetChangePassword.aspx.cs': The
filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.

"svn diff -r 602:806 ..." worked as expected.
