svn switch --relocate fails for deleted directory

Hi folks,

Had the following issue when I moved my svn repository from my local
machine to a server. I used the svn switch command on my working copy
as follows (svn switch command was on one line)

svn switch --relocate svn://localhost/lax/purleylax/web/trunk/web
svn: Working copy 'web\reports' is missing or not locked

The web\reports directory used to be there, but I had deleted it, and
committed that delete a while ago. However there is still an entry in

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

If I checkout the project this entry does not appear in the entries
file. So, is the problem that <entry name="reports".. has remained in
the .svn/entries file, or should svn switch --relocate ignore this entry?

I am running

windows XP
Subversion command-line client, version 1.2.3 - server same, though I
started out on 1.1.3 I think

I have obviously worked round this, it's not a big issue. I just wanted
to report this in case anyone else comes across this issue.
