Not sure quite what you mean. Selected items are not automatically shown, 
except perhaps when a directory is first opened. There should be no "jumping 
around" during the course of a progressive rename operation.

If files are sorted by name, and you select some then rename, the renamed (and 
now, reselected) items will probably be relocated, but your view of the 
filelist would be essentially unchanged, apart from the relocated items. Just 
select the next one(s) to be renamed, and iterate ...

For now at least, for evaluation purposes, svn code has support for 
re-selecting the cursor row after move/delete, if the config option "select 
first item in newly opened directories" is enabled.

Not much tested on gtk3, but for that, the issue really is appropriate 
un-selection when you don't want that behaviour.
