Accidental deletion caused breach in file history

I am a new user to svn/tsvn. I just made a mistake I don't know how to
correct. Here it is:

I accidentally deleted a file in my local working copy, then I
accidentally committed this change, causing the repository to lost
that file as well. I recovered the lost file from a manual backup
elsewhere within my hard disk, putting it into my local working copy
and committing again, so the repository has regained the file.

But now the repository recognizes this as a deletion of an "old file"
and an addition of a "new file", despite being the same file of the
same name and content. The file history is broken and I don't know how
to relink it.

Is there any solution to this problem? Thanks in advance.
