External references after repo relocate

Hi list
I have moved a repository from a networked server to a laptop so the
path to the repo has changed.
Access was "http://192.168.1.20/svn" to "file:///G:/svn"
The relocate command worked and repo access is working.

Accessing the Externals becomes a problem.
The Externals properties are stored containing the original path which
is no longer available so an Update fails.
Its possible to do a checkout without Externals or alternatively to
modify the properties and check them in but only if the local WC is
already up to date.
However problems arise if you want to update to an earlier revision by
selecting a rev from the log messages. In this situation you don't get a
dialog with the option to ignore externals and the update fails because
the externals path does not exist.

Similarly there were also be difficulties while trying to view
differences between revs.

Is there a work-around?

Peter
