Hi Steve,

Just tried with nichtly 1949. I still get the warning about "bar is not
under version control". The move goes on!
"myProject\bar" is not shown as deleted in Explorer, but if you select
commit, "bar" and ist subfolders are scheduled for deletion.
"myProject\foo\bar" is shown as added in explorer and is shown as scheduled
for addition when you select commit.

Did you try and right-drag-move a svn:externals directory to a different
location inside the same working copy?

I know what that is. I use this layout for all my projects to include the
libs inside the working copy.

Trying to revert that move partly fails. Reverting the deletion of
myproject\bar runs smoothly, but when TSVN arrives at reverting the addition
of foo\bar it fails with a 'working copy not locked' message on one of bars
subfolders. Cleanup doesn't help, but deleting foo\bar\subfolder followed by
a revert solves the situation.

Since the CL client does the same nonsense when moving the external, I know
where to report that. But in contrast to TortoiseSVN I can revert everything
with the CL client, even if it takes two steps ('svn revert -R .' and 'svn
revert -R bar') instead of one with TSVN. So there defitevely is a bug in
