It's because, even though that new file has the same name, it's a NEW
file. Subversion doesn't track items by their name, but rather by an
internal, unique ID. When you added the "new" file with the old name,
you created a new object altogether in the repository.

To locate the history of the original file by that same name, you need
to understand peg & operative revisions.
