No. It didn't. Count the ..\'s in my original command:

svn move update-version.vbs ..\..\..\Internal

What it should have done is moved it up 3 directories, and then put it
in the existing directory called 'Internal' at that level.

What it did was move the file up one directory and rename it, as if I'd
typed "svn move update-version.vbs ..\Internal"

Here's another example. I've broken the lines after the prompt, to make
the commands clearer.

I'm expecting the same behaviour as the Windows "move" command, which
you can see at the end of this transcript:
