RE: svnadmin hotcopy results missing first letter

OK, here's something weird.

My directory is setup like the following:
Repositories: E:\Subversion\Repositories\
Backup: E:\Subversion\Backup\

If I am in E:\Subversion\Repositories\DemoSecurityWebApp and use
relative paths with the command:
E:\Subversion\Repositories\DemoSecurityWebApp>svnadmin hotcopy .
..\..\Backup\DemoSecurityWebApp

I get the issue I described below with the missing first character.

However, if I am in the same directory but use absolute paths:
E:\Subversion\Repositories\DemoSecurityWebApp>svnadmin hotcopy
e:\Subversion\Repositories\DemoSecurityWebApp
e:\Subversion\Backup\DemoSecurityWebApp

Everything comes out fine.

Seems like there is a bug in the hotcopy functionality.

This is on Windows Server 2003 Std Ed with SP2.
