Why on earth are you using the --relocate switch? The point of that
switch is for rewriting urls when you switch schemas or hostnames.

But in your case, you don't need that at all. A simple

   svn switch http://svnhost/combust/trunk

would have 'updated' your working copy to the new repository location
with no problems at all.
