 I see only two possible ways to fix this problem:
 If you have checkouted source tree before, you can use following
 command to relocate it:
 find /usr/src -name .svn|xargs -n 1 -J XXX sed -i '.bak'
 If you can't checkout source tree with wrong url - fix your script,
 which check out source tree, but never svn.
