I can't test it right now, but as far as I know, this is no problem.
As an example, if your repository was at http://www.example.com/x,
and you had done this:

$ mkdir working-copy
$ cd working-copy
$ svn checkout http://www.example.com/x .
$ svn switch http://www.example.com/x/branches/branch-1.0/some-file ./

And now your repository is no longer available under http://
www.example.com/x but instead svn://www.example.org/y, you would
relocate the working copy like this:

$ cd working-copy
$ svn switch --relocate http://www.example.com/x svn://
www.example.org/y .
