I've done some tests. Try with --ignore-ancestry, that should work:
svn sw --ignore-ancestry ^/tags/3.9.3/htdocs

But you really should do the install and upgrade using the tarballs or
any other documented and officially supported method.
I do this with dolibarr since 3.4 version.
The problem with SVN arise once in the past.
See "Bad history for 3.5.1 tag on GitHub (with SVN)" thread on 14/03/2014

It was fixed at that time.

And I don't like using the .tgz method because it leaves old file that are no longer part of new version in place, with potential security risks.

I've learned the SVN way with SPIP ;-)
SVN update old file, put new files, and *remove* file that were in the repository but no longer in the new version.


I also like SVN and use it for some of my projects, but Dolibarr uses git, so the best thing you do is to switch to git from svn.
Basically with git you can do same things as with svn and some more. It should be easy to switch to git if you are used to svn.
I've not found a tutorial to do the same thing. <-- See this link in the middle of the page somewhere there is a svn switch example what in git should be a simple checkout.
Try to google a bit, this was one of the first options outputed for me.

And it would be useless on my installation : how do I switch easily from SVN to GIT ?
I would say that if you have some custom code, I would do a svn diff > mycode.patch then checkout the git tree and apply the patch.

And GitHub support SVN !

It supports it but I think you miss all the git benefits.
