Thanks, that was it. Actually it turns out that my error was to use just
the directory names instead of file:///directory for switch --relocate.
However I think it should have at least given an error message then,
instead of silently not working (even the error return code was zero).

But I think it would be even better if it worked anyway. An easy way to
get that would be to simply treat every "URL" starting with / as local
file (i.e. basically do a sed 's:^/:file:///:' on the URL arguments).

And my checks of course all worked, because I did them *before* removing
the old repository! I just wasn't aware that I didn't use the new one
right away, because after all I didn't get an error message (not even a
non-zero return code).

But anyway, now everything works OK again (as far as I can tell :-)).
Many thanks!
