This happens when you rename folders directly in explorer. But TSVN
doesn't just delete the folders with the old names. In the commit
dialog, those folders are marked red with status 'missing'. If you
select those for the commit, *then* (and only then) will TSVN remove
those folders from version control. If you at the same time don't check
the unversioned 'new' folders (the ones which you renamed with the new
name), then TSVN won't add those folders to version control.

You must not change names. You must use a Subversion client to do the
rename. Right-click on the folder, then choose "Rename..." from the TSVN
context menu. If you do that, then everything will be fine.

It worked the very same way. You just haven't had those problems because
you either haven't renamed a folder back then, or used the proper TSVN
command to do it.
