failed svn switch destroies repository paths

Hi,

This seems to be a hint on what is going on in report Issue # 1900
        http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=1900

Summary:

        In this situation, "svn switch" leaves behind wrong repository paths

        after reporting the error, which makes the working copy un-usable.

        What I means is that "svn info" reports the wrong URL afterwards.
        The URL is wrong in that the topmost directory below trunk or the
branch is missing.

Detailed example:

1. Read
                trunk/A/B/C/D/file3
        onto file
                /sources/A/B/C/D/file3
2. Modify
                trunk/A/B/C/D/file3
        locally.
3. Deleted that file in a branch, say
                branches/branch/A/B/C/D/file3
4. Now you switch in current directory
                /sources/A
        to
                /branches/branch
5. Result: Won´t delete locally modified file..... (as in #1900)
6. Say
                svn info /sources/A/B/C/D
        Result:
                URL: ..... /branches/branch/B/C/D
        ### Notice that top-level path 'A' is missing ###
        This may be the reason why a following update (see #1900) fails.

Regards
        --Oliver
