FileUtils.mv fails to move symlink between filesystems
|ruby -v:||ruby 1.9.3p362 (2012-12-25 revision 38607) [x86_64-linux]||Backport:|
FileUtils.mv sometimes fails with a "Errno::ENOENT: No such file or directory - /path/to/symlink" when attempting to move a directory containing a symlink between filesystems. This may be because it moves the destination file before the symlink and then fails to move a "broken" symlink. Using the shell's "mv" instead works reliably.
A small test script is attached.
