Howto pass subversion path as url parameter


I have the following requirement:
We often create small patches for our software. For each patch, we create a new subversion branch.
Now we want to give the developer the possiblity to start the build without first having to set up a new project in teamcity.

Since it is possible to use a parameters as svn URL, i've created a new configuration parameter, called %SvnPath%.
If i set the svn url to this parameter, everything works just fine. But i like to automate the whole process for the developers.

I found this website ( which describes howto pass parameters to a build request.
But in case of the SvnPath, this seems to be ignored.

Any hints how i can set this parameter?

Some more informations:
1. I've created a configuration parameter, called SvnPath
2. In the url field of svn conntection settings is %SvnPath%. This value can be selected from the autocomplete list
3. I start the with the following url: http://user:password@server:8080/httpAuth/action.html?add2Queue=bt3&name=SvnPath&value=http%3A%2F%2Ftragicomix%Stuff%2FKaderli%2FTrunk%2FdotNet%2FBuildTest
4. The build fails with the following message: Unable to collect changes: jetbrains.buildServer.vcs.VcsException: Problem collecting changes for 'BuildTest :: BuildTest' : org.tmatesoft.svn.core.SVNException: svn: Malformed URL ''
5. In the log view of the failed build, the build parameter SvnPath has the parameter(svn http address) which was passed via the http get request
