I got this error trying to build gcc using cygwin 1.5.11. This problem
is easily reproduced:
X:> touch Tfoo.exe
X:> chmod a+rx Tfoo
X:> ls -l Tfoo
-rwxrwxrwx 1 earlch mkpasswd 0 Oct 8 22:08 Tfoo
X:> mv Tfoo foo
mv: `Tfoo' and `foo' are the same file
Digging deeper, I see that ls uses stat(), which eventually gets
to stat_worker() which uses build_fh_name() passing it the suffix
suffix_info stat_suffixes =
suffix_info ("", 1),
suffix_info (".exe", 1),
The function build_fh_name() uses path_conv and gives it the suffix
table to use to find the target.
OTOH rename() goes straight to using path_conv without a suffix table,
and fails to find the file.
Should rename() pass stat_suffixes to the path_conv ctor?
Is there some subtle reason for suffixes only to be passed for stat()
