In that case, you didn't use the svn commands to move/rename your
file. If you just move the file in explorer to the new location, then
the commit dialog shows you the file in the old location as 'missing'
and in the new location as 'unversioned'. If you check the unversioned
one, TSVN will add it and of course also remove all missing files, but
it can't know that those two files are identical.
You always must use the svn commands to move/rename a file, otherwise
you *will* loose the history. So: right-drag the file to the new
location, then choose "move in Subversion to here" from the context
