Re: Rename/Copy Not Behaving as Expected

Two updates:

1. The command line fails as well, so it's not TSVN. I get the
following error:

svn: Can't remove
svn: Can't set file
read-write: Access is denied.

I'm running the windows command line utility on WinXP. In this case,
the command issued was "svn mv core server" where core is a directory.

2. The "server" directory is being created, but with a status of
"Normal". This may be because the process didn't complete. I saw a
similar error (I can't say whether it was exact) when renaming through
TSVN, but not during copy. The result of both actions was the same -
a server directory with what appeared to be a Normal status (judging
by the icon).

I'll try to copy through the command line next and see what happens.
