I have not noticed any sensitivity to the characters in "newname". I just created a file named "foo" and did an R to "foo1" - the line disappeared.

I did the same with file "bar" to "bar1". Here's output in *Messages*
(New file)
Saving file c:/Users/bernie/bar...
Wrote c:/Users/bernie/bar
Overwrite `c:/Users/bernie/bar'? [Type yn!q or C-h]  [5 times]
Move: 1 of 1
Move: 1 file

As to using Edebug: I don't know Edebug.  Is there a way to set breakpoints inside emacs from emacs?

I just tried it in an "emacs -Q" window. Did a dired of my Users home 
directory and there did an R of an existing file to "newname".  The line 
containing the file disappeared.

In other words: "emacs -Q" made no difference: the problem remains.


Does the "newname" affect the problem?  E.g., if you rename file "foo"
to "foo1", does the problem still happen?

Also, can you perhaps debug this in Edebug?  I can provide guidance if
needed.  The function that refreshes the display is
dired-do-redisplay, defined on dired-aux.el, and the actual refresh of
the line of the affected file is in dired-update-file-line, also in
dired-aux.el.  Just step through these two functions and see what is
going wrong there and where.
