I backed up the rep and then checked out the whole project as it was just after I used the repbrowser to create the "Subproject1" folder and immediatelly selected all and tsvn moved the files to it. First error was funny - it said that "Project/trunk/Subproject1/.svn" has local modifications". The immediately after that "Working copy "Project/trunk/Subproject1/.svn" is missing or not locked. Please execute the "Cleanup" command." This amazed me because I was actually moving *to* this folder by selecting all except it and moving to it. The second time I tried it said that some other folder has local modifications, pressed yes, and got subfolder dublication i.e. "Project/trunk/_US" folder was moved as "Project/trunk/Subproject1/_US/_US". And all hell broke loose, I stopped the operation, there was no point in destroying it further :)
PS: I just noticed - I can see the hidden folders and I have selected the "Project/trunk/.svn" folder with the others. Maybe TSVN should pay special attention to those folders not making any operation with them?
I'll repeat the procedure - checkout - move agian with viewing hidden folders turned off and will report again.
