Renames and access restrictions

I have an issue with a subversion repository to which I'm restricted to
access only some directories. Whenever someone renames a file within a
directory to which I have access, any subsequent attempt to update with
a restricted account causes an error like this:

svn: Server sent unexpected return value (403 Forbidden) in response to
request for 'https://servername/svnroot'

The response is correct because I don't have access to that directory
(that is the root of the svn repository), but I have access to the
directory where the files were renamed.

Why the client tries to access the root of the repository when the
rename is within the same directory ? Is there a way to force the update
? Right now my only option is to checkout the project anew, loosing all
changes I've made so far.
