Dear Eli,

Thank you for you response.
If you don't mind I would like to try to fix it.
It just would take some time to prepare my environment to build Emacs.

Do I need to provide bug report in such case either?

So for Windows rename returns EACCES instead of EXDEV.


Maybe to fix it in Windows we need to check rename error code not only
for EXDEV but for EACCES also.

No, we should modify sys_rename (in w32.c) to return EXDEV in these

I encourage the OP to file a bug report (using "M-x report-emacs-bug")
about this.  It should be easy to fix this.

Sorry, what "OP" means? :)

"Original Poster".  That is, you.
