SVN log-diff crashes if server not available

Repro = SVN checkout, make changes to a file, SVN commit, SVN log. Remove access to the SVN server (mine is accessible only via VPN, so disconnect VPN). Right-click a file, SVN Show Log, press Offline for now (not the default), find the file modification in the path/action list. Then either double-click on the file, or right-click on the file : Show Changes. The result is as follows:

Subversion Exception!
Subversion encountered a serious problem.
In file
line 10238: assertion failed (svn_dirent_is_absolute(local_abspath))

Pressing OK results in another pop-up:

Subversion reported an error:
'C:\Users\<me>\AppData\Local\Temp\3' is not a working copy

(My sandbox is in C:\_SVN, not C:\Users. Maybe Windows is virtualizing storage for SVN? Maybe a check for server accessibility isn't quite right?)

The workaround is to reconnect to the server (reconnect the VPN in my case), but I was surprised that SVN would crash when offline.

Thanks in advance for your attention. -Dirk
