Can't help you with your TortoiseSVN usability complains; please
direct them to the TortoiseSVN mailing list. We do not support that
product here.

All you should have to do is "svn switch --relocate", as you're trying
to do. The error message suggests to me you are trying to change more
of the URL than just the part that points to the repository. If you
need help debugging that, please show us the old and new URLs and the
old and new repository locations on disk.
