I figured out why the switch wasn't working for me... I was confusing
the trunk vs. tags URIs and svn would delete the file on switch and not
work afterwards since there was no file to reference. So I got bit by
exactly the question you are asking. The long path makes for occasional
mistakes. So I think I'll stick to using tsvn as much as possible.
