What do you mean with "taking the .svn directories with it"? The renamed
folder should contain an .svn folder too, as should the 'old' folder.
The overlays of the renamed folder should change to 'added', and the old
folder should have the status 'deleted'. You can check the status in the
check-for-modifications dialog.
Then, you can commit the rename by right-clicking on the *parent* folder
of the renamed folder and commit all entries at once.
