For completeness, I filed the 1.8 "imperfect error message" as an issue here:

   http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=4377 (svn
reports "'.' is not valid as filename" when updating a dir named 'E:'
on Windows)

I quite happy myself that 1.8 already gives a reasonable error message
(even though it's not perfect). But if anyone else would like to
improve this: feel free to give it a go and submit a patch [1].
