I also tried to commit the renamed files from Windows Exploder/TortoiseSVN
I had Tortoise/Renamed the two files. There is *some* problem here. A

Also, I've renamed a handful of the several hundred files over the last

I believe the problem is because you are using cygwin. Cygwin is a nasty hack and causes problems like the one you are seeing, so if you want to use tortoise you should get a mingw svn command line build, not cygwin. It looks like the problem is that tortoise is using windows style path names, and cygwin uses unix style path names. Instead of doing the rename with tortoise, try doing it from the command line and see if you can commit.
