The bug is in wdired-search-and-rename (called when
wdired-use-interactive-rename is non-nil) and is triggered by leaving
part of the original file name unmodified (in the above case, the
extension '.c' was not altered), which leaves the dired-filename text
property, which dired-move-to-filename, called by
wdired-search-and-rename, finds and moves point there, causing the
subsequent search for the file name to fail.  The patch below fixes this
bug, according to my tests, but maybe I overlooked some corner cases.
Can you try it and see if it works for you?
