Thanks for the detailed analysis, Chris!
I don't remember the subtle differences of File#renameTo() on Windows and Linux.
I verified the differences in renaming behavior, and agree with your fix.

> The rename() method in RawLocalFileSystem uses FileUtil.copy() without realizing that
FileUtil.copy() has a special behavior that if you're copying /foo to /bar and /bar exists
and is a directory, it'll copy /foo inside /bar instead of overwriting it, which is not what
rename() wants. So you end up with weird behaviors like in this repro:
> {code}
> c:
> cd \
> md Foo
> md Bar
> md Foo\X
> md Bar\X
> hadoop fs -mv file:///c:/Foo file:///c:/Bar
> {code}
> At the end of this, you would expect to find only Bar\X, but you instead find Bar\X\X.
