In that case, it's actually explorer who should remove the source file
after the drag. But since it doesn't, I've disabled the "move to" menu
in r17800.

That's not quite correct.
Windows shows the "move" cursor only if the source and target are on the
same drive, and if source and target are both file paths.
In all other situations, the "copy" cursor is the default.
For example, moving a file to a text editor uses the "copy" cursor.
Holding down the shift key while dragging only changes the cursor to
"move" if a move is actually possible. If a move is not possible, the
cursor won't change.

So what exactly is TSVN doing wrong here?
