>> svn cp http://url1/svn/trunk/foo/bar http://url1/svn/branches/mybar -m
>> "created mybar"
>> svn switch http://url/svn/branches/mybar bar
>>
>> basically in the svn switch I missed the 1 off the url in the switch

> I don't believe you. If the 'url' can't be resolved by DNS, then

> Reproduced below....
