run svn info and look at the URL it reports. This is the one you used when
doing the initial checkout. When you issue the switch command the url
supplied for the repos path must match the URL in the admin section
of the repos. This can of course be changed with svn switch --relocate, if
you would prefer another. On Windows this is a known bug.
