>From my previous message:

   Visit ~/junkdir/a and put the cursor on `.'.  Now R, H and S all
   produce errors after one answers y or yes to all questions.  Better to
   throw an error immediately.  C does something.  It does not seem to
   matter what one answers to the "overwrite" question, just answer yes
   to the "recursively copy?" question.  ~/junkdir/b now contains both
   file1 and file2, that is the _contents_ of ~/junkdir/a got copied into
   ~/junkdir/b without deleting anything.  Among the four, this is
   clearly the only potentially useful behavior.

I forgot to mention: specify ~/junkdir/b as target.

   Well, remember that Markus expected that with the cursor on `.' in
   ~/junkdir/a, R would rename ~/junkdir/a to ~/junkdir/a/b and we

Meant was: rename ~/junkdir/a to ~/junkdir/b/a.

Sorry for the typo and omission.
