Stop!
No, you don't have to "switch" your WCs to the new URL, you have to
"Relocate" them! Relocate is a different command than "switch" (yes, the
command line client has this as a 'sub' command of 'switch', but it's
internally a completely different command and that's why TSVN also has
this as a different command).
