Generally, you would use the relocate command on the command line. I think this is automatically included in the TSVN switch.. if it seems you are going to a different repo it will tell the API to --relocate. However, to relocate the new repository has to have the same ID as your old repository. You can use the svnadmin command to set it... or if you dump/load the loaded repo should have the same repository id.
