Odd path name

I'm seeing a nasty bug in several of the GUI front-end tools for subversion,
and the error messages from several involved a path containing:


where 12345 is one of the revisions involved. The complaint is about the path
not being found, but I'm not clear on where it's coming from in the first
place. Neither "!svn" or "bc" are currently or were ever part of the project
in question.

Does this ring any bells with anyone?

FYI: The situation that appears to cause problems is when a repository
directory tree is "collapsed" by moving the contents of a nested directory to
that directory's parent and removing the original directory. From that point
on, all the GUI front ends get very confused when trying to difference
revisions of a relocated file that span the committed move.

I do not believe the problem is with SVN, per se, since command line diffs
using the two revision numbers against the current file location work fine.

I'm thinking that path is part of SVN's bookkeeping and it would help to
understand it in more depth.
