Hi,

I've a quite big checkout (~ 600MB) and moved the subversion repository
from file:///svn/proj/subdir to https://domain/svn/proj/trunk/subdir.

So as can be seen, before it was proj/subdir in SVN and then I moved it
to proj/trunk/subdir.

Then I used switch to switch my working copy to the new URL:

svn switch --relocate file:///svn/proj https://domain/proj/trunk

The operation doesn't indicate a failure (probably it doesn't contact
any repos), but when I run 'update' I get:

svn: REPORT request failed on '/svn/repos/!svn/vcc/default'
svn:
Cannot replace a directory from within

Also, 'ls' doesn't work

svn: REPORT request failed on '/svn/repos/!svn/bc/38/proj/trunk/subdir'
svn: '/svn/repos/!svn/bc/38/proj/trunk/subdir' path not found

The URL from .svn/entries says

https://domain/svn/repos/proj/trunk/subdir

and when I run

svn ls
https://domain/svn/repos/proj/trunk/subdir

it works. So I'm a bit confused now as to where the error is. Is there
any additional debugging I can do?

thanks,
- - Markus
