There's no bug here. Subversion doesn't have true moves. It implements
moves as copies and deletes.

That means that 'svn mv foo bar' is exactly the same as running 'svn cp
foo bar; svn rm bar'.

After running the command, 'svn status' will show two things
"scheduled": bar will be scheduled for addition (with historical
information attached), and foo will be scheduled for deletion. When you
run 'svn commit', the addition and deletion will actually happen in the
repository, and then in your working copy.

When you then run 'svn log bar', you'll be able to see that bar was
copied from foo, i.e. is a continuation of the same line of history.
