Please find attached an updated patch that addresses the
case-change-only rename using delete/add.  I have added comments in the
patch to describe why we do add/delete in some cases and delete/add in
another, as well as how we could lose data in the delete/add case if the
delete succeeds and the add fails.  Given what we are trying to
accomplish, I can't think of any other way to handle this because we
don't have any transaction semantics available.
