'svn move' causes lockup/crash

I can consistently make the subversion client enter some sort of
infinite loop that brings down my machine (until the OOM-killer kicks
in, anyway) by allocating more & more memory. This is with
subversion-1.5.1 on a x86_64 gentoo box.

Let's say that "project" is laid out such that
"/project/old_directory/sub_directory/filename.c" already exists in
the repository. Now I type this sequence of commands:

svn co http://some-url/project
cd project
svn move old_directory new_directory
cd new_directory/sub_directory
mkdir blah
svn add blah
svn move filename.c blah

(svn shoots to 100% CPU usage, and quickly gobbles up all my memory)

Is this a known issue? I tried a few searches on the bug tracker but
didn't get anything. I can provide additional details as needed.
