Edward, thanks for the suggestion.

I did an svn stat and noticed that about half the directories had an
'S' next to them - seems the switch I attempted at the root started
but aborted halfway through the project. After I moved all those away
from the root the switch --relocate worked fine at the root; moved the
'offending' dirs back and voila, all done.

Perhaps an internal dry run is in order so this doesn't happen (or at
least doc the side effects of starting with a leaf).

Thanks a ton.
