Relocate not working with externals

On FreeBSD 10.2 using subversion 1.9.3 from ports, relocating a working copy
with externals does not work.

To duplicate, create a repository containing two directories and a text file
in each directory. I created following:


Now add an external within proj1 for proj2.
    cd proj1
    svn propget svn:externals .
    ^/proj2 proj2

Commit property change to repository.

Replicate repository to a mirror repository.

Checkout proj1 from mirror

    svn co svn+ssh://mirror/svn/proj1

Relocate working group to master

    cd proj1
    svn relocate svn+ssh://master/svn/proj1

You will see error:

    svn: E155024: Invalid source URL prefix: 'svn+ssh://mirror/svn/proj1' (does not overlap target's URL 'svn+ssh://mirror/svn/proj2')

Anybody else seeing this issue?
