Tortoise gets confused when branches are renamed

I created a branch branches/bugfix by copying from trunk (using the context menu in the repo browser to copy directly to a new branch in the repo).

I altered one file (Reports.cs) in the branch, and committed it. This was rev 869.

Much later, trunk has moved along a lot, and I want to do a new bugfix to trunk. So I rename /branches/bugfix to /branches/bugfix-2009-03-27 (using the context menu in the repo browser).

I create a new bugfix branch (as above, from the repo browser).

I make some fixes (to different files, as it happens).

I then show the log of /branches/bugfix-2009-03-27. I go to rev 869, and see the change I made. It appears as "/branches/bugfix/Till/Reports.cs". I right click on the file in the bottom pane, and choose "Show changes" or "Show changes as unified diff".

Tortoise tells me there are no changes!

I go to a command line, and ask it for a diff between revisions 868 and 869 of "/branches/bugfix-2009-03-27/Till/Reports.cs", and it shows me the diff correctly.
