"mv a b/" when b does not exist

rm -rf a b
mkdir a
mv a b/

fails on Linux with coreutils-5.93:

mv: target `b/' is not a directory: No such file or directory

In previous releases (such as 5.2.1) it has worked.  The rename() call
is also happy with the trailing slash.

Is this a regression, or an intentional change?
