I can reproduce:

svnadmin create repo --compatible-version 1.8
svnadmin create repo2 --compatible-version 1.8
svnmucc -mm -U file://`pwd`/repo mkdir A mkdir B propset svn:externals '^/B B' A
svnadmin dump repo | svnadmin load repo2
svn co file://`pwd`/repo/A wc

$ svn relocate file://`pwd`/repo2/A wc
svn: E155024: Invalid source URL prefix: 'file:///home/pm/sw/subversion/obj/repo/A' (does not overlap target's URL 'file:///home/pm/sw/subversion/obj/repo/B')

With 1.8 the relocate does not produce an error but does not relocate
the external either:

$ svn1.8 relocate file://`pwd`/repo2/A wc
$ svn info --show-item url wc wc/B
file:///home/pm/sw/subversion/obj/repo2/A wc
file:///home/pm/sw/subversion/obj/repo/B wc/B

The error does not occur if the working copy root is the repository

$ svn co file://`pwd`/repo wc
$ svn relocate file://`pwd`/repo2 wc
$ svn info --show-item url wc wc/A wc/A/B
file:///home/pm/sw/subversion/obj/repo2 wc
file:///home/pm/sw/subversion/obj/repo2/A wc/A
file:///home/pm/sw/subversion/obj/repo2/B wc/A/B
