I can reproduce it:

$SVN mkdir $REPO/foo $REPO/foo/bar $REPO/foo/baz $REPO/zig $REPO/zig/zag
$SVN co $REPO/foo wc
$SVN sw $REPO/zig wc/bar
$SVN ps x x wc/baz
$SVN ps x x wc/bar
$SVN ci wc/baz wc/bar

check_wc_root() does this

  /* If PATH's parent in the WC is not its parent in the repository,
     PATH is a WC root. */
  if (entry && entry->url
      && (strcmp (svn_path_url_add_component (p_entry->url, base_name, pool),
                  entry->url) != 0))
    return SVN_NO_ERROR;

which means that a switched directory look like a wc root, I think
that's a bug. Hmmm, if PATH was a switched file it looks like the
above code would classify the file as a wc root, that's doesn't look
right either. The check_wc_root function has been around for a long
time, I'd guess it pre-dates switch altogether.
