If you "svn move" a part of your repository that others are using as
the base of their working copies, then they will need to "svn switch"
their working copy to the new address, since "svn up" will produce
the error message you saw.

I am unable to reproduce the problem you see when running "svn
switch". It works correctly for me, with Subversion 1.3.2 on Mac OS X
10.4.7 PPC. I'm using the http protocol, not svn+ssh.
