I guess that is indeed the case.

I tried to, but didn’t manage:
- Using JavaHL in Eclipse, I tried to disconnect all projects from
svn://coxorange, then removed the location and added it again. Then
reconnected the project, still the same error occurs. Trying to
relocate from svn://coxorange to svn://coxorange/ gives

switch --relocate svn://coxorange svn://coxorange
     Inter-repository relocation not allowed
svn: 'svn://coxorange/' is not the root of the repository

So it seems javaHL also removes the trailing /.

- If I use SVNKit in Eclipse, and try to relocate from svn://coxorange
to svn://coxorange/, it changes the repository location svn://coxorange
to svn://coxorange/trunk/MSO, where MSO is the project that is attached
to that repo. If there are more projects, it splits it up into a
location for each project.
Moving the file still does not work with the same error message.

- From the command line I tried the following:
  svn switch --relocate svn://coxorange svn://coxorange/
svn: 'svn://coxorange/' is not the root of the repository

Exchanging the slashes gives the same error.
So no luck.

Do you have some concrete tips on how to get this fixed? I’m afraid
I’ll have to dive into the svn bookkeeping files and do some hand-editing.

The SVNKit bug tracker claims this bug is fixed, maybe it isn’t
integrated in Subclipse yet?
