Well, I guess I didn't understand what you want.

Actually, I moved my repository from a server to another years ago,
and as I said, I always have only a few working copies. So, for me,
relocate all of them is not a real problem.
To relocate all of them I just open the relocate dialog, and as you
know, this dialog have only one edit box to enter the new repository
URL. So I just change the URL to change the working copy to the new
For example, my working copy refers the URL 'http://server/svn/Project/
trunk/', and now my server will work over https protocol. As both URLs
are equals in the relocate dialog (from e to URL), I just need to type
the character 's' to change the protocol from 'http' to 'https'.
For me, the button '...' is not useless because I never thought about
this button as a button to use to open the repo browser for the old
URL but for the new URL, to check if you really type the new URL
But I don't agree with you when you say the path shoudn't be editable,
just because there is a case where you would like to edit the path.
For example, (I'm not sure) you can relocate your working copy from
'http://server/svn/Proj1/trunk' to 'https://server1/svn/projs/proj001/
trunk'. As I said, I'm not sure, but I guess you can. So, that's why
you can edit the path. Because you can change everything when you are
relocating. But you can't change only the directory using the relocate
command, because in this case you may use the switch command.
