No, it's fine. I was just addressing the problem itself to point out
where it probably occurs. I assume that it works fine when using
casesensitive mount points under 1.7. I assume further that the problem
is the same as old versions of coreutils had when only trying to change
the case of a name on a caseinsensitive filesystem, basically along
stat (old_path, &ost)
if (stat (new_path, &nst) == 0)
/* Uh oh, target exists */
if (ost.st_ino == nst.st_ino && ost.st_dev == nst.st_dev)
/* Even worse, it's the same file */
