bug#28519: 26.0.50; Dired move of directory across partition boundary fails

It seems that a very similar problem occurs when trying to move a
directory using tramp to a remote system (with ssh/scp).
Open a directory in dired,
With point over a subdirectory, press R to "rename" it,
As the destination, select a directory on a remote filesystem (with
The subdirectory is moved to the destination.
Nothing happens, with sample error message:
Renaming /local/path/directory to
‘/ssh:address@hidden:/path/to/directory’ failed: (file-error Read
error Is a directory /local/path/directory)
(Details redacted for privacy.)
Moving a file (rather than a directory) works normally.
I assume that the underlying issue is the same as above, so I'm not
filing a separate bug.
