moving a directory in the repository and working copy?

Is it possible to move a directory in the repository and my working
copy, without having to transmit its contents? I did a move between
URLs and switched my working copy to the new URL, but if I move my
working copy to match its new location in the repository, its parent
directory gets confused.

That is:

svn mv http://svn/trunk/foo http://svn/releases/bar
cd ~/trunk/foo
svn switch http://svn/releases/bar
cd ../..
mv trunk/foo releases/bar
cd releases
svn update


svn: Failed to add directory 'bar': object of the same name already exists

(at least, that's the basic idea; I actually used different paths).

Is there a better way to do this? Or am I going to need to download
the directory from the server with an update after doing the move in
the repository?
