Try "svn info" in your working copy. Does it still show the old
repository address? If so, you did not successfully execute the
relocate command; try again.

I'd try using "svn up" to test if the relocate worked, rather than
"svn ci"; it's less destructive.

Why do you think the relocation was successful? I thought you said it
produced an error message.
