That's good to know - as I may use this "patch" locally :o)

Again, useful to know - thanks.

I've just performed a switch whilst using my modified "un-refreshing"
First it ran very fast (comparable to "svn switch ..."). Im pretty sure
that no -- project -- files were actually modified during this process
(I branched from the head of some personal project, and then switched
the project root to the new branch).
Then I did a right click, "Refresh" on the project - which took 5mins
(with NO progress information other than "0%" progress until it
So, yeah - **something** is out of sync as a result of the switch - but
I don't think it's the source-controlled files.
Certainly dir-wcprops has changed in the project root's .svn folder.

Is there perhaps something that says "do a full re-build if the root
directory meta-data has changed"? (Long shot :o)

Basically, it seems that the refresh in SwitchUrlCommand isn't the root
of my problem - its what ever is causing the 5min refresh directly --
after -- a top-level switch that is giving me grief.

Yeah... Once I've solved my current problem, I'll hopefully find time to
start investigating.
