Copy/Move/Rename Failing

I'm not sure if this is a misunderstanding on my part, but I'm trying
to rename a directory which contains a lot of files and
subdirectories) which, as I understand it, is essentially 2
operations: copy and delete. It looks like the copy part works fine
in terms of moving all of the subdirectories and files, but the newly
copied directory is retaining the "Normal" status. That leaves me
with a new folder by the new name that thinks it's checked out from a
repository which doesn't know it exists. I've tried to create the new
directory via rename and I also tried to do a basic copy.

I've tried these operations via TSVN and the command line (WinXP). In
all cases, I get an error that a file (which file varies) in a .svn
subdirectory of the new copy is locked. Since it's the newly copied
directory, I assume this means that the process itself is locking it.

Has anyone else seen this? Am I doing something wrong? Any insight
would be appreciated.
