a git svn bug

   git developers. I found a bug when i want to convert webkit to git
   there are some branch named safari... in webkit svn repo.
   when i want to convert them to branch in git. a problem happen.

   if you want to reproduce the problem, just follow the guide below.
   1. git svn clone -s https://svn.webkit.org/......

   2. when it runs to about r13800, stop it and rerun the above command

   3. the git client will check the refs it already found, and if it met a ~ in the branch name. it will failed to proceed. error is git thinks it an invalid ref name

   i digged into it, and found a solution in git/perl/git/svn.pm. I mod this file and bypass the problem.

   plean be kind to fix the problem and remind me the fix commit, and i will update to a new version.
