I do not really know the answer to your questions, but one thing I
learnt with subversion:

Whenever you commit directory changes (rename/move of files/folders,
changing folder properties etc), *update* your working copy
afterwards! This seems strange, but if you don't, you have a mixed
version working copy, and you might not be able to commit the
following folder modifications. See the chapter "Mixed Revision
Working Copies" in the subversion book, namely the "Mixed revisions
have limitations" section:
