Er, had you considered that mv, when the target and source are on
different filesystems, does a cp followed by an rm?  If rm requires
free space -- which I very much doubt on UFS unless a snapshot
exists -- the rm step of the mv is going to run into exactly the
same problem that the standalone rm runs into.
