svnserve problem with -r <drive root> on win2k

I've hit a problem with svnserve on win2k - it appears not to
work properly when the root is specified as a drive root folder.

When not specifying a drive root as the svnserve root, the
svnserve root works quite fine. A real example - all the
following have the same effect ...
    D:\>svnserve -d -r d:\john
    D:\john>svnserve -d -r d:\john
    D:\john\projects>svnserve -d -r d:\john
.... in all cases accessing the repositary as ...
works quite fine.

In contrast, using "-r d:\" makes the repositary root
relative to svnserve's working directory. For example,
with ...
    D:\>svnserve -d -r d:\
.... the repositary is accessed as ...
.... whereas with ...
    D:\john\projects>svnserve -d -r d:\
.... the same repositary is accessed as ...

I guess you could call this an undocumented feature,
but it looks a bit more like a bug to me. I think
"-r d:\" should be absolute; if a relative root
is required it would be specified as "-r .".


Other than that, many thanks for a rather useful system
(which pleasantly surprised me at work today by getting
a rather involved bit of berging right).
