The drag and drop operation started by the commit dialog of TortoiseSVN
allowed COPY and MOVE. It depends on the destination application which
operation is used by default and how this can be toggled. In the Windows
Explorer use the Control Key to change from MOVE to COPY.

Since MOVE doesn't make sense, I've removed the possibilty to MOVE in
revision 9914. This change will be available in TortoiseSVN 1.5.0.
