Thanks for your reply, Andrey,
But would it not be possible to work around this issue then in TSVN? Because
the required information *appears* to be there in the revision log - the old
file name, and the new one.
Perhaps this is more of a feature request, then.

Because not having the ability to compare revisions IMO takes away almost
the entire point of maintaining a history for rename and copy, does it not?
:-)

Thanks again,
- Lars
