This is an implementation problem in the working copy library and
unrelated to true renames. It can be fixed, but only in a minor
release (not in a patch release). Ben Reser has been working on fixing
it, but the fix isn't done yet. (It's in a branch in the repository,
so if you feel like working on it, please do!)
