locks get lost when renaming a file

(reposted with some additional info, please ignore my other mail)

In my repository, I have some word documents with the "svn:needs-lock" property. When I get a lock for one of the documents, make some modifications and then "SVN rename" the file, then the lock seems to be lost (the file is read-only again).

If I now commit the renamed file, then the repository shows that I have two files in the repository
- the one with the old name (still locked)
- the new one

I'm not sure if this is a bug (of subversion or tortoiseSVN) or if this scenario is simply not supported.

I'm using TortoiseSVN 1.5.9 and the server is using SVN 1.5.6.

Best regards.
