The current directory is the default path if not specified, so both of
these invocations did the same thing (whatever they did instead of what
we'd expect they'd do).

What happens if you run this?
svn upgrade '/home/jabiason/src/work/nephalem/12514-old/nephalem/media'

This expectation doesn't hold in the case of 'svn upgrade', unfortunately.
It must be passed the path to the top-level directory of a working copy.
I've spent quite some time in the 'svn upgrade' code in an effort to
fix that but to no avail. In some situations (involving nested working
copies of various formats) svn just can't make a well-informed guess.

Still, if the path you pass is not a working copy root, I'd expect to
see an error such as:
svn: E155019: Can't upgrade '/tmp/svn-sandbox/trunk/gamma' as it is not a working copy root, the root is '/tmp/svn-sandbox/trunk'

I'd like to reproduce your problem locally but so far I haven't succeeded
in doing so.
