mmaany projects) is there a way to do this.

In the settings dialog (under General->"Dialogs 3" for me) there is an
option to show (or not show) externals in the repo browser. That may help
your repo browser problem.

For finding all the places you need to make a change, I'd probably write a
short script using the command-line tools that uses "svn proplist" on each
directory in the repository, then uses "svn propget" on each one that has
externals defined and checks for your old repo path.

In the future...you should avoid specifying the full server path if
possible, using the special "^/", "/", or "^/../" paths documented here:
