I don't believe you. If the 'url' can't be resolved by DNS, then
there's no way the switch could have worked in the first place -- the
switch absolutely has to contact the repository and ask it to compare
two trees. Are you leaving some details? If not, I'd like to see a
transcript of your commandline session that demonstrates this.
Reproduced below....

C:\Desktop\sb>svn cp http://mppoffice1/sandbox/trunk/bar http://mppoffice1/sandbox/branches/mybar -m "copied bar to branches"
Committed revision 66.
C:\Desktop\sb>svn switch http://mppoffice/sandbox/branches/mybar bar
svn: 'bar' does not appear to be a working copy path
branches commit trunk
C:\Desktop\sb>cd trunk

Rewrite the SVNROOT portion of the URLs in your working copy by running

    svn switch --relocate http://url http://url1
[TM] nice to know... I nearly started editing the .svn/entries files!
