Commit dialog suggestion

Whenever you do a copy/move/rename operation Subversion puts an empty
svn:mergeinfo value on the effected nodes. I'm really struggling with
this because it causes all sorts of chaos in the log. Not only does
it pollute the log with files whose contents haven't changed it also
causes strange and unrelated revisions to appear when including merged
revisions. One work around that has been published is to delete these
empty svn:mergeinfo properties before they get committed. That's what
I have been doing.

This leads me to my suggestion for TortoiseSVN. One thing I noticed
about the commit dialog is that it will display files that have their
properties modified. That's fine and dandy. But, it fails to do so
on files that have been copied, moved, or renamed. Anytime a file has
the text status "added (+)" the property status is always blank even
if a property really was added. Obviously, that makes it difficult to
spot the situation I describe above. It would be nice if the property
status column worked when doing a copy/move/rename operation as well.

I'm using TortoiseSVN 1.5.3.
