I think this question is better answered at
users_at_subversion.tigris.org as I don't think this is a bug in your

Did you switch the root of your workingcopy or some directory below the root?

The switched state is only valid on items below the point where you
start looking. When you switched the root itself, subversion sees the
directory of a checkout of the new location (and not switched).

You should see the S on subversion in the following scenario:
$ svn co http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/trunk trunk
$ cd trunk
$ svn switch http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/branches/1.5.x/subversion
$ svn st
S subversion

But when you directly call status on the subversion directory as in
$ svn st subversion
You see no switched status, as you don't look at it via the parent.
