convmv @1.14_0 renaming deletes files

convmv --lower --notest --replace FILE

deletes 'FILE' instead of renaming it to 'file'. I believe this is because convmv overwrites files by deleting the output file first, then renaming the input. This can cause problems on case-insensitive file systems. The attached simple patch removes file deletion before renaming.

Can you please report this to the developer of convmv?

I have reported it, although it's an OS X specific problem, since the linux filesystem is case-sensitive by default.

Committed a variant of your patch in r78864. Hopefully upstream will fix it for the next release.
