a) Be sure to use the SVN rename, not the Windows rename. If you use
Windows, you cause confusion because you have removed a tree from within
your working copy without telling subversion about it.

b) After SVN rename, be sure to commit the parent, not just the
'renamed' folder, otherwise you will not commit the deletion part of the

TSVN->Settings->Use commit timestamps. If you want anything different
from that you will have to pester the users@subversion mailing list.
TSVN just uses SVN library functions to handle the files.

What do you mean by check-in? That is not a term we use. Do you mean
commit? If Thumbs.db is already versioned, you cannot ignore it.
Ignoring only applies to unversioned files. If it is unversioned then
you need to tell us how are you trying to ignore it. Global ignore list
or svn:ignore property of the parent folder?
