Hi Paul,
I would agree with your statement ... at least with Boophone.  Repot early in the season shortly after new seasonal growth has initiated.  I did so last year with the 2 larger potted specimens and plan to do so with the remaining two ... along with several community pots of 2.5-year old B.haemanthoides seedlings.  
I am debating whether or not to do the same with these 2.5-year old Brunsvigia orientalis seedlings:
any thoughts from the Amaryllid experts out there?

When did you repot (seasonally). I used to think that 
repotting was done during dormancy but now think it is best 
when they start sprouting.
