By the way, we could change the text of the relocate warning, since it now
only shows up when someone tries to shoot himself in the foot.

I suggest something shorter than currently. Something like this:

Caption: Relocate inside the same repository detected
------
You are trying to _relocate_ your working copy _inside the same repository_
From %s [1]
To %s [1]
This is normally done by a _switch_ operation.

A relocate is only needed if the if the protocol or the server name or ip
changes
(e.g. http:// to https:// or http://svn.myserver.com/ to
http://svn.yourserver.com).

An inadequately used relocate *will corrupt your working copy!*
Now that you've read and hopefully understoiod the above:

Do you really want to relocate?

[Yes] [NO] [Help[2]]
------

[1] Could you underline/highlight/different color the identical base URL in
both lines?
[2] Can you add a help button to the relocate warning?

I left out all the conditions and ifnots that are IMHO confusing and tried
to boil it down to the source of the problem.

Cheers
