Did you try using "--ignore-ancestry"?
It should help because your delete+add has really broken the historic-line of
the folder (the newly added is really another folder)

Anyway... I think this option is under-documented; I find myself using it often
when promoting branches (not changes). The fact of TortoiseSVN not providing it
doesn't help neither; too much of my users are afraid of command line, I guess.
