Bug Description

I have a collocated branch created on Windows, moved to Linux via a straightforward zip of the entire directory. The checkouts are broken by the fact an absolute path is saved.

mathrick@megumi:~/Dropbox/sagsportal $ bzr info
Dangling branch reference (format: 2a or pack-0.92)
Location:
   control directory: .
  checkout of branch: /C:/Documents and Settings/trendware/Skrivebord/sagsportal/.bzr/branches/trunk

mathrick@megumi:~/Dropbox/sagsportal $ bzr reconfigure --lightweight-checkout --bind-to .bzr/branches/trunk/
bzr: ERROR: Not a branch: "/C:/Documents and Settings/trendware/Skrivebord/sagsportal/.bzr/branches/trunk/".

summary: - Copying collocated branches Windows and Linux broken by absolute paths
+ Copying collocated branches between Windows and Linux broken by absolute
+ paths
