What is the error message?  (I'm surprised that it fails.)

But ignoring that... it might be easiest to work around the problem by 
creating symbolic links at the old locations... at least long enough to 
update them.

You could use bin/withlist to modify all your lists.  (Run it with no 
arguments  for help.  In particular, not the section where it explains 
the -r argument.)
