You should *not* be using the --relocate switch for this.

'svn switch' and 'svn switch --relocate' are very different commands
for very different situations.

Use 'svn switch --relocate' only when the url that _leads to the
repository_ has changed. For example, the scheme, hostname, port,
etc. The command does a blind rewrite of the prefix of every URL
stored in the working copy.

Use 'svn switch' when the path _within the repository_ has changed.
The command runs a real 'update', asking the server to compare two
paths within the repository, and to apply the differences to your
working copy. You use this, for example, to switch to a branch. Or
if the project itself were simply moved within the repository.

So you want the 2nd case.
