His description matches something I run into myself all the time, due to
Emacs's case insensitive filesystem:

    17:10:45 Vulcan:/tmp $ mv foo Foo
    mv: ‘foo’ and ‘Foo’ are the same file

Good catch, I hadn't noticed this oddity. Maybe this particular case is a real
bug.

If that's the case, it sounds like a real bug, I'll reopen.
