As the summary says..

I'm currently on a project where we moved a lot of files recently - files which has a lot of history.

However, the only thing the logviewer shows for these files now is the rename commit. Git supports viewing logs of the entire file, accross renames - on the commandline by using the --follow parameter.

Would it be possible to get monodevelop to do the same?

This has just been implemented should be in the next release of MonoDevelop. Thanks for reporting the issue, it was simply an oversight that it was not done.
