switch problem

I have got a problem with "svn switch" not switching all subdirectories to the new target.
The structure of the projects that show the problem is as follows

   --(svn:external)--> component_1
   --(svn:external)--> component_2
   --(svn:external)--> component_n

Now switching "import" results in some components to be only partially switched to the new targets. E.g. component_1 is completely switched but for component_2 some subdirectories are not switched: svn info reports the old location -- but not for component_2 itself but only for some subdirectories in it.

Running "svn update" on import or on the components does not help. Running "svn switch" on each component helps but is very annoying as the number of components is quite high.

I could write a script that extracts the URL using "svn info" for all those components and re-run svn switch for each using the URL found. But I would think that this should be fixed in subversion.

As I cannot give out the working directory of the project affected by the problem I tried to find a small example showing the problem but without success so far.

Any ideas?

Version is 1.6.3 (via TortoiseSVN)
