What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Create a directory in subversion, /a/
2. Create a directory in subversion, /b/
3. In /a/, create a subversion property "^/b b", so that /b/ is included as /a/b/
4. Create and 'svn add' two files, /a/a.txt, /a/b/b.txt.
5. Create a patch from /a/, containint those two files.
6. Submit the patch using New Review Request

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?

The expected output is to create a review as if /a/b/ had been a normal directory. Instead, an error message is displayed: "The file 'https://svnserver/svn/a/b/b.txt' (r12345) could not be found in the repository"
