New submission from twb1 <twb at cybersource.com.au>:

It seems that if instead of

    darcs move a b

you do

    mv a b       # whoops!
    darcs mv a b

The "post-facto" darcs mv will DWIM[0].  This isn't clear from
move_description, which should change.

[0] There is one exception: a post-facto "darcs move a b/" where b/
    has not been added to the repository.  While dealing with this
    ticket, check that the error message in this case is helpful, and
    if not, file another bug report.
