That's (unfortunately?) a feature, not a bug. The renamed folder is
still versioned (it has the .svn folders in it). That renamed folder is
part of a so called 'nested layout' (search the Subversion book for
this), which means this is perfectly legal and fine to do, and SVN
doesn't consider this a problem.

Since the renamed folder is versioned, the "show unversioned files"
won't help here. Only in the "Check for modifications" dialog the nested
folders are shown, because it wouldn't make much sense in the commit
dialog (they can't be committed in the same commit).
