Bug#56478: mv in boot-floppies does not work reliably
The "mv" command in the boot floppies is not reliable enough for moving
I have done the following to reproduce this: Downloaded root.bin
from the disks-i386 directory, renamed it to root.bin.gz, gunzip it, and
mount it on /mnt using the loop device. Then I do the following:
mkdir a b
/mnt/bin/mv a b
ls b [ at this point, nothing is shown ]
The `a' directory disappears!
The mv command in slink's boot floppies used to work.
Since this bug may cause data loss, I tag it as "grave".
