If the original repository is at "http://server/svn/Proj1" and the new
repository is at "https://server1/svn/projs/proj001", then then you
have a checkout of "/trunk" in that repository, and this is exactly
the situation of which Ulrich speaks. You are changing the repository
root (from "http://server/svn/Proj1" to
"https://server1/svn/projs/proj001") and leaving the repository path
("/trunk") unchanged.

If the either repository is in some other location (e.g.
"http://server/svn" to "https://server1/svn") then you are not
relocating to a new instance of the same repository, making relocate
an invalid operation.

Is this really that hard?

Ulrich's question:
Why does TSVN present the possibility of editing the repository path
(as opposed to the repository root; see above) if it knows that it
will later refuse that edit?

Ulrich's conclusion:
If, as the documentation suggests, I am not allowed to change the
repository path, that portion of the WC URL should either (1) not be
displayed, or (2) be displayed in a read-only format.
