I'm very surprised that it was able to do this at all, actually.

If you want to undo the change, and can't undo it in the local working
copy, a good way is to do it via URLs, for example

   C:\>svn rm -F logmsg.txt http://URL/TO/THE/NEW/FILE

or

   C:\>svn mv -F logmsg.txt http://URL/TO/NEW/FILE http://URL/TO/NEW/FILE2
