I think the problem is that you can't see the old URL in full so it is
not always obvious how much of the new URL is the repo root.

In the relocate dialog you see:


and the new URL is:


What do you enter as the new repo root? If you can see the old URL in
full then it becomes easier:

Old URL: svn://svn.example.com/svn/clientname/software/group3/trunk/project1
New URL: http://svn.bigserver.com/svn/yourcompany/software/webclient/group3/trunk/project1
Looks like the server admin has re-arranged the directories where the
repositories live.

OK, you can get that information by opening the subversion properties
dialog, but it would be easier if you could see it right there.

How about if you put the current repo root in bold with the rest of
the current URL in normal or even greyed text?
