Checking for misdirected subfolders?

Imagine a repo where you have
and also
and they are nearly identical.

Then imagine you did a Switch on your WC for the "trunk" folder, to
"branch1". This should be a relatively simple operation.

But I just did something like this, and it failed 2/3 of the way through.
Now I've noticed that SOME of the subfolders (very, very deep subfolders)
are not pointing to the right repo. It's almost like I have the following:

   WC / [branch1]subfolderA / [trunk]subfolderB

Cleanup and update doesn't do anything. In fact, no mods are reported, so
SVN must think everything is OK.

Is there any command or procedure I can use to detect or correct the
misdirected subfolders?

This is a very large project that takes more than an hour to build from
scratch, so deleting all and checking out again is really not an option for
