Repo Browser folder rename and uncommitted changes

Greetings!

I am just wondering what the best way to go about a parent folder rename
is?

Background:

Our repository is set up as follows:

Repos/
  Group1/
    Project1/
      Branches/
      Tags/
      Trunk/
    Project2/
      Branches/
      ...
  Group2/
    Project3/
      ...
    Project4/
      ...
  Group3/
 ...

We had some developers that were working on the Trunk of Project1 with
uncommitted changes in their working copies. Using the Repository
Browser, I
renamed the project folder ("Project1" to "ProjectX"). However, when
the
developers updated their working copies before committing their local
changes,
all their local changes were blown away. Needless to say, this was a
pretty
costly surprise. I think this has something to do with the move/delete
method
of renaming.

If anybody has checked out code in a sub-folder, must I ensure that they
have
no uncommitted changes before renaming the parent folder?
