relative path "is not a working copy"

From: Mark Therieau <markt_at_covergence.com>

When specifying a working copy relative path
of the form: "..\..\..\foo"
svn errors out with: "'..\foo' is not a working copy"

svn seems to be compressing "..\..\.." to ".."
Anyone know why?

Here's a reproduction recipe for windows...

svn --version
cd \tmp
mkdir test
cd test
svnadmin create repo
mkdir i
mkdir i\a
svn import -m "" i file:///c:/tmp/test/repo
svn checkout file:///c:/tmp/test/repo a
cd a
mkdir b
cd b
svn stat ..
svn stat ..\..\a
svn stat ..\..\..\tmp\a

And here's the output...


C:\tmp>svn --version
