I get the same result as Stefan when using 1.8.10 on Ubuntu 14.04 64-bit. Tried with both the package provided by WANdisco and also with a self-built 1.8.10 (built in maintainer mode).

FWIW, you probably know this but the command to do what you want here is "svn relocate" (previously known as "svn switch --relocate"):

  $ svn relocate https://teyjus.googlecode.com/svn

The error "svn switch" gives is wrong: it *is* the same repository in this case. We should improve the error message, perhaps suggesting the user might want "svn relocate" instead.
