Cannot commit files that I've renamed.

I used Tortoise SVN to 'Tortoise Rename':
        move_long.c to srt_state_m.c, and
        move_long.h to srt_state_m.h

I then used Subversion from a cygwin|bash command line to check in my
eight subproject repository changes. Some output, snipped to show
highlights, is shown below.

alacis@AIS-PC95 /cygdrive/d/firmware
$ ./svn_update.sh ; ./svn_commit.sh <<<< this commits eight
+ svn update
At revision 2247.
+ cd libs_all
+ svn update
Sending bcr.h
Sending doxygen/Doxyfile
Adding (bin) doxygen/help.chm
Sending global.h
Sending main.c
Deleting move_long.c <<<< this was Tortoise Renamed
to srt_state_m.c
Deleting move_long.h <<<< this was Tortoise Renamed
to srt_state_m.h
Sending parser_body_local.i
Sending parser_head_local.h
Sending parser_table_local.i
Sending srt.hwp
Adding srt_state_m.c <<<< commit failed on
this file.
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: Couldn't determine absolute path of 'D:/CompanyData/ProjDev/svn/PSPS'
alacis@AIS-PC95 /cygdrive/d/firmware

I could only fix this by 'Tortoise Revert' on these two files, then
'Tortoise Deleting' them, and 'Tortoise Add'ing them.

Then doing a Subversion commit worked OK.

Should the original 'Tortoise Rename' have worked?
What should I do in the future?
