Well, of course, but this is true any time a file is simultaneously
changed in two working copies. It's not any more true in this case.

What I would like to see in the client is a status flag on every file
in the working copy that has been merged (which the user can clear
after manually reviewing the merge) and a new property to indicate
whether files may be committed with the unreviewed-merge flag still
set. The flag is part of the working copy and not sent to the
repository. But that's a separate issue unrelated to file renaming.
