Possible regression in externals definitions?

In subversion 1.5, (on windows) one could declare an external like this:

http://svn/repos/some_path external_dir\inner_dir

... and subversion would happily check out http://svn/repos/some_path
into external_dir\inner_dir as an external. In 1.6, however, the
external gets checked out into external_dirinner_dir (the \ gets
ignored). If the external is changed to:

http://svn/repos/some_path external_dir/inner_dir

... the checkout of the external proceeds as expected. I don't know
whether this is a regression in 1.6, or whether the 1.5 behavior was
wrong and never guaranteed to work, so I wanted to throw this out and
see what came back.
