Re: Bug#80544: [rename] can't rename dir with valid permissions

I'm saying that I can't rename a file using gmc which I *can*
otherwise rename. So your first guess in not very accurate.

You know how to rename something in gmc, yes? You do that
in the properties of a file, by editing the name and then
clicking okay. The edit widget there becomes a ghost item
in this startling case.

Try to reproduce what I do there. The permissions on parent
are irrelevant. That's a vfat filesystem. Permissions are
same everywhere anyway if you wonder.

orion:exa$ cat /etc/fstab | grep vfat
/dev/hda2	/win		vfat    defaults,user,exec,suid		1	0
/dev/hdb1	/data		vfat    defaults,user,rw,exec,gid=105,umask=002		1	0
/dev/sda4       /zip            vfat    defaults,user,exec,rw,noauto    0      0
/dev/sda1       /zip/ppa-bug    vfat    defaults,user,exec,rw,noauto    0      0

that happens to be data and gid 105 is windows
