Re: "swapping" files or folders by renaming gives strange errors

i wonder why it worked for me?
-- ok i was too inexact here,
of course i used something like

 svn rename file-A to file-Ax
 svn rename file-B to file-A
 svn rename file-Ax to file-B

and then continued to fool around with these files randomly
using update to previous revisions and merging back and forth.

but probably the reasons for any problems occouring after
that 'swapping' are based on the same "issues".

after doing 1 whole day of testing svn i have the strange feeling
that everything cvs didn't do at all doesn't work very well in svn yet ;-)
( folder renames, named tags, branches, server reboots... )

thanks anyway :-)
