SVN move troubles

TortoiseSVN 1.8.8, Build 25755 - 64 Bit , 2014/08/10 14:44:06

I encountered this arguably wrong behavior of the >SVN Move versioned item(s) here< operation.

In a WC folder I have some modified and some non-versioned items.
If I select one modified and some non-versioned files and drag them with right click to a versioned subfolder (not modified)
a context menu appears where one of the options is >SVN Move versioned item(s) here<.
If I select it, I get an error dialog:

Path 'C:\path\to\the\WC\non-versioned-file.txt'
does not exist

After clicking OK the operation stops.

The state after is: the modified file was SVN moved to the subfolder, the other files left where they were.

Expected: The modified file is moved, the others stay, no error message.
This is arguable. On one hand, I selected the non-versioned files and said >SVN move them...<, so I should get an error explaining why no operation was done (note, the error mentions only one of them, the other are not mentioned). On the other had, it says >SVN Move _versioned_ item(s) here< so it is normal that non-versioned files are not affected (so there should be no error reported).
Also the content of the context menu depends on which file I begin the drag operation.
If I drag "holding" the modified file, the menu shows >SVN Move versioned item(s) here< and >SVN Copy versioned item(s) here<, but if the same files are selected but I start the drag from a non-versioned file, the menu shows >SVN Copy and add files to this WC< and >SVN Vendorbranch here<.
