[issue721] hg rename mishandles directories (badly)

New submission from Jonathan Shapiro <shap at eros-os.com>:
1. Create an initial repo with a single file fred/fred/barney.txt.
2. From top of workspace, hg rename fred/fred to fred
fred/fred/barney.txt: not overwriting - file exists
At best, this is deeply counterintuitive and contrary to documentation, but it
suggests that directory rename is being mishandled. What I *suspect* is
happening is that HG is enumerating the last argument "fred" and the rest goes
south from there. I have not looked at the code, but we have a very similar
logic error in OpenCM.
ThomasAH seems to think this is a bug.
