Bug when replacing multiple files using drag & drop

Replacing multiple files using drag & drop in Windows Explorer does not copy all files.

Steps to reproduce:
- Create a working copy with two branches that have identically named files in them.
- In Windows Explorer, select multiple files from one branch, right click on the selection and drag the files to a different folder/branch in the same working copy.
- Choose "SVN copy versioned item(s) here".
- A dialog box appears: "The target file ... already exists. Do you want to replace the file?"
- When answering yes, only one file out of the selection will be replaced and the other files will simply be ignored.

Expected result: A dialog box should be presented for each file to be replaced. If possible, a "Yes to all" and a "Cancel" button in the dialog box would also be nice.

A simple workaround is of course to replace each file individually.

When using "SVN move versioned item(s) here" instead, a new name has to be entered for each file when a file name of that name already exists. In this situation, I'd also expect to be able to replace the existing files. However, entering the same name is not possible currently (OK button grayed out).

Using TortoiseSVN 1.6.10, Build 19898 - 64 Bit.
