Imagine, what `mv' does in this case (shortened):
if (st_from.st_ino == st_to.st_ino)
// Oops, it's already the same file
and this is exactly the situation for `mv' under windows! It's not
a bug of cygwin dll, because the two stat calls really return stat
structures of the same file! This is correct for case preserving FS.
It's the problem of the 'mv' implementation, to handle this situation
