Re: [TSVN] Rename bug

        Just because TortoiseSVN doesn't support my way of doing it
doesn't make it "user error". Fact of the matter is, I feel this is at
the very least a usability bug in TortoiseSVN. I doubt that a single
Windows user will know to follow the steps you mentioned without
looking them up. They are far from intuitive. On the other hand, my
approach is intuitive and I suspect many more people will try that and
run into an error. You should just support it and be done with it.
