relocate with svn:externals

From: Paul <alabamapaul_at_gmail.com>

Server: Ubuntu 6.10 running Subversion 1.3.2

Client: Win XP SP2 TSVN 1.4.1 build 7992 (also tried with 1.4.3 build 8645)

Problem:
Until recently, we had to use an explicit IP address to access our
Subversion repository, because the server did not have a valid DNS
entry.

Some of our directories in the repository have svn:externals with a
URL that points to another directory in the repository.

Now, the server's IP address has changed, but it now has a valid DNS
entry, so we can use the name rather than the IP.

I have done a dump - modify - load cycle to convert these explicit IP
addresses to names.

If I checkout a new working copy, or export, everything works fine,
all svn:externals are pulled from the proper location.

If I use the TSVN Repo Browser and check the properties of the various
directories, the svn:externals all refer to the new name rather than
the old IP address.

However if I try to use the TortoiseSVN | Relocate to relocate an
existing working copy to the server name, the relocate completes
without any errors.

Now, if I try to update the working copy, it attempts to access the
svn:externals using the now invalid IP address instead of the name
that is stored in the repository.

This sounds like Subversion bug 2209
(http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=2209) but this
looks as though it has been resolved.

1) Am I doing something wrong ?
2) Is this a known bug ?
3) Is there a simple work around if it is a bug ?

Thanks,
Paul
