bug#32967: dired-do-rename: don't say overwrite when you really mean attach as child

積丹尼 Dan Jacobson
R runs the command dired-do-rename (found in dired-mode-map)

It says e.g.,
Overwrite ‘/tmp/201840’? [Type yn!q or C-h]

That is great, but it just uses the same message for all cases:
file->file
file->directory
directory->file
directory->directory.

At least the case I tested: directory->directory, overwriting is very
much different that what really happens (attaching as child).

emacs-version "25.2.2"
Yes I'm sure I reported this before.

I'm not sure what you're referring to here.  Do you have a test case?

Not today anymore. Closing.
