Perforce rename / move problem?

I just started using Perforce. It seems that when I rename or move a
file, IDEA does p4 revert then p4 add. Why doesn't it p4 integrate then
p4 delete/revert? Do I have something configured wrong? I can't find any
JIRA requests about it so I think it must be my end.

Thanks.

IDEA reverts old file in order to open it for delete. Why isn't it suitable
for you? Doesn't it work?

It drops the change history for the file. I don't want this. p4
integrate would copy the change history for the new file, I believe.

For me it calls integrate before delete so history shows revisions before
rename. It seems integration thinks file before rename was not under p4.
Please submit it with p4.output attached

In the IDEA bin directory. IDE->Settings->Vers Controls->Perfors. There is a
p4.output file path (Dump p4.output to ...)
