SVN patch file does not contain file renames?

I used Ankh SVN to create a patch from local working copy changes, so I could temporarily revert to baseline to test something. Then I tried reusing the patch, but it didn't work because my changes included some file renames that apparently weren't reflected in the patch.

Can I tell the patch to rename files?

Currently, subversion can handle file renaming metadata. For example, in tortoiseSvn you can "restore file renames" in the commit window.

But if you create a patch from renamed files and try to apply the patch, you are in trouble.
