I also move working copies around all the time.

But, I think there's a solution here:

   1. The metadata knows where the working copy/copies live, by absolute
      path, as Greg says.

   2. If you plain mv or cp a working copy, it stops working, BUT...

   3. ...the error message from Subversion points out that the working
      copy may have been mv'd or cp'd, and offers a command to
      "re-register" it with the metadata store. This command is the
      metadata store's chance to clean up its reference counts
      w.r.t. that working copy.
