That's completely expected. Remember: Subversion is folder oriented.
When you copy FolderC to FolderA, the files within FolderC aren't added
to FolderC, they're still rooted in FolderC. Only the FolderC is added
to FolderA, but not the files within (they haven't changed their root).

It is correct.
If you like this to be changed, you have to ask on the Subversion
mailing list. TSVN simply shows the real Subversion status.
