In a Maven repository, we need to parse the path sometimes to be able to determine what the
version and classifier are. That has been known to trip up on non-standard versions in the
past and we've built up some test cases. It should be a simple bug to fix.

In trunk, we're moving to relying on that less - particularly in cases where it is not important
(such as here where everything is a Maven 2 repository and there is a POM that describes the
version for it). There's still some work to do there.
