Quick question about "svn switch"

Hi folks !

It should be simple, but maybe I missed something :

- If an repository URL is changed (or even better : it is moved on an other
server), the clients only need to use "svn switch" to make their working
copies switched to the new URL, right ?

In my case, I've just change the path portion of the URL and is seems to
fail ... Did I missed something ?
Is the "switch" command only use for moving from branch to branch ?
Is it possible to extend the feature to allow the purpose I wished ?
(it would be kind of useful since Url changes can happend very often)

Thanks in advance !

Original Url: http://websrv:8080/svn/ev4/Event4000
New Url: http://websrv:8080/svn/ev4000/Event4000

(notice that only the Apache changed in this case, I've just edited the
"httpd.conf", the repos still the same on the disk)
(it look like it try to validate and/or connect with the old Url)
