Have a look at VisualSVN (http://www.visualsvn.com/). It integrates
into Visual Studio and tracks renames very well. Also it have several
nice features such as ability to rename files multiple times without
commiting, correct file reloading after Subversion operations and
invoking TortoiseSVN through main menu. Unfortunately it's commercial
product, but price is not too high.
