Update is a simplified switch where you can't change the URL, so you're spending
the same amount of network traffic to switch or update.

It's odd that you see this:

$ svn st
     S 1.5.0-rc7

which suggests you checked out the tags directory??? Which isn't a good idea.
You should directly check out the tag.

In any case, inside the 1.5.0-rc7 directory it doesn't think it's a switched wc.
    So if you move the 1.5.0-rc7 somewhere out of the parent directory it is in,
rename it to 1.5.0-rc11, you'll be fine.
