No, I use only one repository. I noticed the overlay icon wasn't shown,
but that didn't worry me too much. It's the output from Check for
modifications that surprised me.

Here's a part of the current layout of the tree:

| | <files>
| |
| \--- mcs51
| <mcs51 assembler files>
| <mcs51 linker files>
    | <linker files>
        <z80 linker files>

Now I want to move "link" under "as" and then I want to move the <mcs51
linker files> to a subdirectory "mcs51" under link, creating something
like this:

    | <files>
    +--- mcs51
    | <mcs51 assembler files>
        | <linker files>
        +--- mcs51
        | <mcs51 linker files>
            <z80 linker files>

In order to accomplish this I right-dragged "link" to the new location
and chose "SVN Move versioned files here". I think I cannot move only
half a directory so I created a new one "mcs51" under the moved "link".
Then I right-dragged the <mcs51 linker files> to the new dir and again
click "SVN Move versioned files here".

Now before I commit I look at "Check for modifications" on the whole
tree. I see:

as/link added (+)
as/link/mcs51 added
as/link/mcs51/<mcs51 linker files> added (+)
as/mcs51/<mcs51 linker files> deleted
link deleted
link/<linker files> deleted
link/z80 deleted
link/z80/<z80 linker files> deleted

This leads me to believe that the directory "link" was moved but it's
files and directories are just deleted. I hope you can understand that
looks really scary and I do not feel like doing a commit.

Maybe I just don't understand the process good enough, but I was
surprised to see "deleted" and "added" in the first place. I expected to
see "moved". And seeing things "deleted" but not "added" worries me
pretty much.

If you can assure this is how it is supposed to be, I'll give it a try.
But I can't help feeling I will need my subversion administrator to roll
