Yes, this makes sense, hence I think it has something to do with the update 
operation. Essentially svn switch is just a super update that makes the 
current directory mirror a new URL. There should not be any problem, 
logically. However, the facts are the facts, both svn switch from cli and 
eSvn have the same result. I think that somewhere the update is not being 
done as it should due to the amount of information be transmitted and hence 
the problem. But this is only speculation. On the other hand I may be looking 
in the wrong place, perhaps I am just doing something wrong. Will check this
