I am stuck, again

I understand that there is a proper way to rename files using Tortoise

My style of programming is to refactor rather ruthlessly and most of
the time when I rename something, SVN shows it to me as the old name
being missing and the new one ready to be added. I accept this.

But all too often everything gets completely messed up. I try to
commit and Tortoise tells me I cannot and tells me what to do such as
an Update. I follow its advice, which doesn't work, and it tells to
do something else, such as a Clean Up. This typically goes in a
circle back to the original advice.

How I wish Tortoise had a command that said "just accept (wtf) is in
this folder!!!!".

Sorry, but without that, how can anyone think of Tortoise as a robust,
quality too.

To get out of my current predictament there will be many white knuckle
moments in which I make numerous back ups, surgically remove .svn
folders and coerce Subversion into reaccepting all my source files.

Subversion should be be resiliently and transparently minding my
files. Instead I find that I serve its very delicate little needs.
