Re: Failed WC -> WC copy. Do relative paths work?

I noticed the same kind of thing recently, but this was in 1.0.4.
From my testing it seemed llike svn would treat more than 2 ../ as a
sort of even odd thing i.e.
../../../../ would be ../../
../../../../../ would be ../

I figured it had been fixed in a later version, so I just converted
the paths to absolute (I'm accessing svn from a perl script).
