BUG: svn switch does not update URL keywords?

From: Dominic Anello <danello_at_danky.com>

I believe I've found a bug in svn's handling of the URL keyword when
processing a switch command, and I'd like to hear other users' thoughts.

When doing a switch, it appears that svn does not update the $URL$
keyword in files that have the keyword set but which have no updates.
To me this seems like a bug. If you do a build from a WC you have
switched, you can wind up pushing out files that have the wrong URL
tagged in them.

Reproduction recipe below.

Any thoughts?
