[Subclipse-users] A General Subversion Question

I have run into a Subversion issue that is causing me some trouble. I have
a simple test case. I have a working copy that looks like this:


I check out two different copies of these files. I then make a change to
the test.txt file in my first working copy (I added the line "this is my
change") and check it in. I then issue a move command in the second working
copy that looks like this:

     svn mv test.txt mydir

I then update my second working copy and I get the version of test.txt in
the old location as an unversioned file. I then check in my second working
copy and I get the following output:

     Adding mydir\test.txt
     Deleting test.txt

The problem is that I didn't get the latest version of the test.txt file.
Just an unversioned copy of the test.txt file in the location before the
move. When I update my first working copy the test.txt file is moved, but
it lost the change made to the file. The revision of the file with the
"this is my change" line is gone. I never deleted it, but it disappeared on
its own. The only way I can get it back is to update the directory it used
to be at to a revision when it used to be there.

Does anyone have any idea what is going on? Is there any way I can prevent
this? Should I be sending this to a general Subversion instead of a
Subclipse list?

Thanks in advance for the help,
