I found a better way to handle this:

        * tests/mv/no-target-dir: Detect a buggy rename syscall.  If found,
        skip this test.  This happens at least on ia64 linux-2.4.19 w/ext3.
        Reported by Matthew Woehlke.

Matthew or Bob, would you please confirm that this detects the
problem and skips the test?
