That is correct. Subversion does not automatically propagate the
changes. You have to do it manually.

You should be able to manually determine what changes were made to
the file under its old name. Look at the svn log to see the revisions
in which changes were made. Use svn diff to get the exact changes.
Apply the changes (using Unix patch or equivalent) to your renamed
file. Now you can commit.
