Problems with update after moving several directories

Dear all,

I have recently changed the directory layout of our software, e.g.
$> cd trunk/
$> svn move IPC/ inter_process_com
A + inter_process_com
$> svn commit
commited revision 1005
and so on...

Now I tried to update a users working copy which he had changed meanwhile at
some files. The result was:
$> cd trunk/
$> svn update
svn: Cannot replace a directory from within

What does that mean? The moved directories all are subdirectories of the
trunk/ directory. This even happens with
$> cd ..
$> svn update trunk/
svn: Cannot replace a directory from within

Is there a problem with updating working directories when main directories
where moved or is it just because the working directory was changed in the
This should not be the behaviour of a versioning system, right?

Please help,
Patrick Heinemann
