Compare with Branch seems broken (intellj mar 22 eap, subversion, mac 10.6)

This worked the first time I set it up, but now seems broken after an IDE restart. I have also done "svn switch" couple of times between branches, but the IDE is able to recognize where the repository is (so long as I don't switch the svn repository while the IDE is running).  I guess the IDE is confused with where the branch root directory is?  (or how to convert filename from absolute to relative paths).

Problem:-
I have a file  foo/bar  checked out under /Users/harry/code/foo/bar  - this is in the main branch.
When I try to compare bar with its version in branch2, it complains it cannot locate  /Users/harry/code/foo/bar insider branch2 or branch3 (where the file clearly exists).
I have configured two branches branch2 and branch3 following the directions in the submenu. Worked the first time I tried this, but seems broken now.

I am using  Subversion -> Compare with Branch.... in the displayed editor area context menu (secondary/right-click)

Let me know what are the next steps in debugging this.

There is an IDEA X 103.312 built on March 22, 2011 and there is an IDEA X 106.273 built on March 24, 2011.  Hmmm. what I am really supposed to try? Why two EAP versions?

Hello Harry,

There is an IDEA X 103.312 built on March 22, 2011 and there is an
IDEA X 106.273 built on March 24, 2011.  Hmmm. what I am really
supposed to try? Why two EAP versions?


One is IntelliJ IDEA 10.0.3 Release Candidate and another is IntelliJ IDEA
10.5 EAP. The 10.0.3 RC is a more stable one.

My original problem is resolved. I had to choose one directory above when configuring the "Location of branches" (it is asking for the root for all branches)
