Resharper 5 - Bulk Move refactoring does not track new file path as a rename

I am using ReSharper 5 with Visual Studio 2010 (both the final versions).
My project has source control binding enabled and we are using TFS.  I recently
tried to move several files using the new project level refactoring functionality,
and I was disapointed to find that all the files I had moved were being tracked
as pending deletes and adds to TFS rather than renames.  If I move the file
by dragging and dropping (a native Visual Studio functionality) then it is
correctly tracked as a rename.  Is this a known issue?  It is a showstopper
for me to use this functionality as it is not acceptable to lose source history
for something like this.

Hi Andrew,

We are on Resharper 6 and are experiencing the same issue with TFS.  Could you please confirm the issue is still outstanding and whether it will be addressed in the next release?

See "When solution is controlled by TFS and Move To Folder refactoring is used to move a file between projects then it should result in rename change."
