Rename or delete causes chaos

When I delete or rename a sub-directory in my local Subversioned
project directory, (without using the TortoiseSVN commands for this)
TortoiseSVN gets totally confused. The result is Confusion and Chaos.

No matter what I do, TortoiseSVN can't figure out that a new directory
should be included. I have tried cleanup, add, and about everything else.

The *only* way seems to be to manually edit a file in the hidden .svn
catalog. But that doesn't feel quite right...

I attach an example of one of the error dialog boxes that can occur.
(No, following the advice in it does not help.).

Is this normal? A bug? A feature? Shouldn't TortoiseSVN be able to
figure out for itself what has changed in my subversioned directory tree
and simply commit those changes when I ask it?

I can't see why TortoiseSVN needs special commands to rename
and delete files and folders. Suppose an IDE (Integrated Development
Environment) also has ideas about how to rename and delete stuff.
That would cause a catch-22 situation.

Am I doing something wrong, or are these known limitations?
If so, what should I do to get around the problem?

Cheers,
Per Lindberg
