Well, we show a big Messagebox before "relocate", explicitely warning
about the outcome, and also telling the user to use 'switch' instead.
The exact message we show is:

<b>ATTENTION:</b> Only use the Relocate command if the original
repository has moved to a new URL.\nIf you use Relocate to direct your
working copy to another repository or branch,\nthis <b>will corrupt your
working copy!</b>\nTo associate your working copy with another branch,
use the Switch command.\nAre you sure you want to relocate?

And the docs are clear about this too. I don't think there's much more
we can do...
