[TSVN] Moving of directories and files

I'm just playing around with moving/renaming of files and directories. I
know real moving is not available yet but all I want is to keep the
history of files when they are moved or renamed.
I solved the problem with case sensitive renaming of files (developers
on Windows) with using RapidSVN as frrontend rather than Tortoise or by
using the Hint about case-sensitiveness from the FAQ

But since neither RapidSVN nor Trotoise seem to completely support
moving whole directories I've tried the following:

- Shutting down the Apache powered SVN server and started a svnserve
process for a test repository. ("svn mv" with http URLS doesn't work and
fails to preserve the history of a file??)
- svn mv svn://localhost/trunk/src/java
svn://localhost/trunk/sources/java (the java directory contains files
with history)

This worked fine so far. When switching back to the Apache powered SVN
server and querying the history log, I get the full history of files
underneath the moved directory:

subversion@turtle /tmp $ svn log
r11 | (no author) | 2004-10-07 12:22:55 +0200 (Thu, 07 Oct 2004) | 2 lines
moving java dir
r5 | BrRe | 2004-10-07 12:03:57 +0200 (Thu, 07 Oct 2004) | 1 line
renaming test.java
r4 | BrRe | 2004-10-07 11:52:02 +0200 (Thu, 07 Oct 2004) | 1 line
Class Test hat jetzt eine main methode
r3 | BrRe | 2004-10-07 11:51:32 +0200 (Thu, 07 Oct 2004) | 1 line
Class Test implementiert
r2 | BrRe | 2004-10-07 11:51:04 +0200 (Thu, 07 Oct 2004) | 1 line
test.java erstellt

But when querying the Log of this file in the moved directory from
Tortoise or RapidSVN I only get the last log entry (r11).
Shouldn't tortoise show the complete log too?
I'm sending this to the tortoise list too, since it might be a tortoise

Systems used:
Subversion: version 1.1.0 (r11180)
Apache: 2.0.51
Berkeley DB: 2.4.52
TortoiseSVN: 1.1.0, Build 1769, UNICODE
RapidSVN: 0.7.0
