reconnecting file history

I'm having a simple problem for which I can't find any solution.
I have searched the mailing list archives, the FAQ, etc. but to
no avail.

Here is my problem:

I made the mistake to move a versioned file the "stupid" way:
I have copied the file to its new place (*not* using svn copy),
added the new file to svn, deleted the original one, and commited
the whole thing. Obviously, that was dumb, and the history of
this file is "lost" (or, to be precise, not easily available anymore).

I am perfectly aware of svn copy, svn move and svn rename,
and have been using them for years. Well, I just wasn't awake
enough I suppose.

Is there an "easy" way to fix this now? Many checkins have
been done since I realized the mistake, so rolling back to before
this checkin is going to be painful.

I thought this would be a classic problem, but apparently it isn't,
so any help would be much appreciated.

(I'm using TortoiseSVN 1.4.1, with Subversion 1.4.2.)
