BIG mistake! Never relocate your working copy if the DNS name or IP of
your server hasn't changed. You must use 'switch' instead.
Didn't you read the messagebox explicitely telling you *not* to use
relocate?

Now all you can do is throw away your working copy and do a fresh
checkout - everything else would mean more work and is very error prone.
