It hasn't lost the relations.

It's just that by default (and this has been argued to death. I
personally believe it is the wrong default behavior), the "peg revision"
is the HEAD, instead of the revision passed by -r.

Thus, you want svn co -r 2 file:///svn/repos/testdir_moved_at_2

That tells it you want to checkout, from revision 2, the file that is
currently named testdir_moved, using whatever name it had in revision 2.
