svn still having problems with UNC pathes on CYGWIN

A while ago I stumbled across a problem with svn when using it on cygwin
together with UNC pathes. Yesterday I had the time to sort
it out a bit. What is the problem? Try this on cygwin (fails both on svn
1.0.x and 1.1.x):

svn info //server/share/path/to/working/copy

This will badly fail with the message
svn: '/server/share/path/to/working/copy' is not a working copy.
(As one can see, there is a leading / missing)

So I debugged in a bit and I think I found the problem. It is
(un)fortunately in
apr. apr_filepath_merge() does not take care about UNC pathes when compiled
on cygwin (I am using the intree apr). I made a small hack to bypass
that and now
it appears to work.

Now I have a more logistic problem. How to get this fixed permanently?
Who shall
I bother with my patch? I think subversion is not the first point here,
even it occurs
with subversion.

Thanks for any help,
