as previously discussed, we try to be bug compatible with Apple. ;)

The problem is, either way, allowing or not allowing directory renames
with open files, it's a bug for OS X clients. But given the impact of
allowing the rename, I think we should add an option to disallow them
as a workaround. This gives us time until Apple ships a fix.

Do we already have a bugreport for this, and if not, can you file one?

Btw, AFP references files and directories by catalog node IDs (CNIDs)
and not by path, so for this and other reasons they don't care about
