This was the main reason for not submitting the patch earlier as I
didn't like the fact that an unlock had to be called as it might hide
other problems. My knowledge of svn's internals is basically
non-existent and I took a straight hack approach to solving the problem.
If there was an easy way to compare the repository UUID entries before
trying the switch then I think it would probably prevent the need for
the cleanup.

My initial patch was for the 1.0.5 line but I did also have a version
that worked with a pre 1.1. I'll confirm that it still works and submit
it. Possibly someone else is able to add the UUID comparison code.
