Renaming directories

I have a question about renaming directories in svn. We work on trunk and branch out when we have a release. I just discovered we have a binary with the same name as a directory within the same namespace and since renaming the binary would indeed make people go mad I must rename the dir. Now my
question is what will happen if I rename the directory on trunk and then later on want to rebase from trunk up to an old release branch for bug fixing and such. How will svn handle the name change? I've tried reading in manuals but unfortunately wasn't able to find anything on this.

Best regards,
