>Description:
Renaming the case of a filename on a smbfs mount using mv deletes the file. This seems to occur when a Windows SMB share is being mounted when the computer the share is being hosted on uses case insensitive file naming (which is default on most Windows systems).
>How-To-Repeat:
Change to an smbfs mounted directory and rename the case of a filename.

Example: rename TEST.MP3 to test.mp3 using 'mv TEST.MP3 test.mp3').
This gives the following output:
'mv: rename TEST.MP3 to test.mp3: No such file or directory'

Listing the directory using ls shows that the file no longer exists.
