[TSVN] Renaming folders

From: Vincent Thornley <vthornley_at_iee.org>

I want to rename a folder with sub-folders.

I can right-click on the folder in the working copy, select
TortoiseSVN/Rename... , type in the new name.
The new folder appears with SVN Status 'added', the old folder remains
visible with SVN Status deleted.
When it comes to commit the old folder name and _all_ sub-folders and files
are ticked to be deleted, and the new folder name (top level only) is ticked
to be added.

When OK is selected an error message is reported 'Cannot non-recursively
commit a directory deletion'. I did an update before the commit and there do
not appear to be any folders or files missing in the commit list, so what is
causing the non-recursive message? Is it because the command to SVN uses
the -N flag and SVN reports an error even though all files are included in
the commit list?

(TSVN 1.1.0 r1526, SVN 1.1.0 RC1)
