Tortoisesvn and VS folder moving problem

There is a problem when you move folder containing at least one SVN controlled file from one location to another.

The problem is that when you do it from Visual Studio 2008 (or any other program) it also copies .svn sub-folder.
This very annoying when you do .Net development where some classes often categorized by folders so when you do some refactoring ...

As result entire repository become a mess - you can't commit , add , you get a lots of different errors.

The workaround is simply manually delete all .svn folders (recursively) in the moved folder before you attempt to do anything svn related.

Ideally I would expect Tsvn to monitor and recognize such conditions , or at least "Clean" to repair it.
