Re: Cannot commit files that I've renamed.

I believe the problem is because you are using cygwin. Cygwin is a
nasty hack and causes problems like the one you are seeing, so if you
want to use tortoise you should get a mingw svn command line build, not
cygwin. It looks like the problem is that tortoise is using windows
style path names, and cygwin uses unix style path names. Instead of
doing the rename with tortoise, try doing it from the command line and
see if you can commit.
