Thanks, that did it. I just thought it odd that other subfolders
were switched and subfolders of those subfolders, but not their
contents. I.e. stuff much deeper than 'doc' was switched already
but not all the way to the files.

  Is there a reason for stopping outright in a situation like this?
Could it not continue and do as much of the switch (or update) as
possible and treat the problem area much like a conflict?
