Re: crash with 'svn st -u' in RC2

I just found out the real reason for why the working copy got into a
state where 'svn st -u' crashes:
the user used the 'svn switch --relocate' command to switch to a
different branch instead of using just 'svn switch'. Apparently, this
users (and I guess some others too) thought that switching could change
his working copy by merging some changes from branch which he didn't
wanted. So he used relocate because "it just rewrites the URL's without
touching any files in my working copy".

I added a big red warning to the TortoiseSVN docs about this.

But the crash still happens and should be fixed!
