Rename: data loss

Hi all out there!

The scene:

wc1/file1 was changed (a paragraph added), not yet committed;

wc2/file1 was renamed in TSVN to renamedfile1 and then changed
(renamedfile1 opened in editor and some existing paragraphs
changed), then committed.

Now this happened:

On commit (with TSVN) of wc2 file1 was reported deleted and
renamedfile1 added.

When wc1 was updated renamedfile1 was added to wc1 and file1
reported deleted.

However, the paragraph added in wc1/file1 was not merged into
renamedfile1 - it was lost! Obviously SVN did not kept track of the
renaming process.

The curious thing, however, is that a search showed wc1/file1 was
still present, with the added paragraph, without the changes made
in wc2, despite the update process reported it as being deleted
(and in wc2 it *is* deleted). But it was not under version control

SVN .27 (latest Windows installer), TSVN .16 (for one working
copy depends on file:/// access, so TSVN could not be updated so
far), Win2000, Apache 2.0.47.

Any hints or should concurrent change & rename not happen in
real life?

TIA - Jan Hendrik
