You did use svn mv, right, not your OS move command?

And are you using the svn command-line client directly or through a GUI?
The command-line defaults to showing all logs unless you use
--stop-on-copy, but many GUIs default to --stop-on-copy, with an
additional button somewhere to retrieve the rest of the history.
