New submission from MNemo <mnemo at united-bits.de>:

Using Mercurial v1.3 importing a patch that contains 

copy a to b
rename a to c

fails with: "abort: a: file not found!"
although every changes where applied perfectly
just a commit with msg, date, … from the patch is missing.

Reproduce with: 

hg init rep1
hg init rep2

cd rep1
echo "file1" > file1
hg ci -A -m "patch base"
hg push ../rep2

hg cp file1 file1.txt
hg mv file1 file2.txt
hg ci -A -m "copy/rename"

hg export -g -o ../patch.diff tip

cd ../rep2
hg up
hg import --exact ../patch.diff
