correct

and still has the original modifications.

in general correct, but in this case it has NO local modifications...

Yup, but this sounds like a workaround...

I know what you want to achieve: svn should notice that both files

No, they are :)

1) I agree that in general, when svn finds LOCAL modifications, it should
stop.
2) I deduce that "adding a file with history" is somehow considered a "local
modifcation to the working copy", but the error message is at least
misleading.
3) I think 'svn switch' should be added a '--force' option

I'm not sure if in this case a simple "--relocate" would help (maybe
relocate + update?)
