Error message: invalid editor anchoring

Repost. Never got a response after 24 hours.

I'm trying to "switch" to a branch. In both TSVN and the svn commandline
I'm getting the error message:

svn: Invalid editor anchoring; at least one of the input paths is not a
directory and there was no source entry

The basic question is: What does this error mean, and what should I be
doing different?

A google produced only one hit on this error message, apparently against
svn v0.29.0.
http://www.contactor.se/~dast/svn/archive-2003-09/0285.shtml The
subject of his email implies that the error has something to do with the
file system path.

According to the manual a "switch" command should use the
svn://example.com/repo/branches/mybranch syntax. I'm pretty sure I was
able to do that in a couple of tests earlier last night, before this
showed up. Am I mistaken about this syntax? Am I likely missing a step?
