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)

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

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 ?
