For this problem, SVN 1.5 will not help either. The problem is the
way Subversion uses it's WC admin area. When you rename a file (on
say Linux) you have two files with same name in the WC admin area. On
Windows/OSX this is not allowed so the Subversion code fails. This
would still happen on 1.5. Doing a commit solves it because the
commit removes the old named file.

If/when Subversion invents a new WC format the problem will likely go away.
