If you have a problem with what March-Hare claim, take it up with them. AFAIK, rename works, but just for renaming a file within a directory in the 2.5 release.... things like renaming a directory or using rename to move a file don't work (yet) are planned for the 2.6 or later released. BTW, you were using rename to move files... *rename* is, IMHO, not *move*. I'm not sure how other people on this list feel, but to me there is a great difference between a simple rename operation and wanting to move files around. Perhaps rename should, therefore, be restricted to simple file or directory rename operations, and moves done through a new command (like "move").
