It is a bug, but probably not one that I would try to fix. I am not
100% sure it can be fixed. The Subversion API is very weak in this
area. Rename tracking works well for history, but not much else. Merge
is not smart enough to follow the rename to apply the change to the
right file.

Try it with 1.1.8 (which is the version you ought to use if you are
using Eclipse 3.2). Merge now uses an API that is closer to what you
used from the command line. It might work if you did the Show History
option on the file, as opposed to a parent folder. If you did choose a
parent folder, then I doubt it would work as the SVN API would not
handle the situation.
