This command executed in shell fails:
mv .. ..

but the same reports no error in PHP:
rename('..', '..')

(I think it reports error on windows)

Test script:
rename('..', '..')

Expected result:
Warning: rename(..,..): .....

Actual result:

Cannot reproduce the issue.

The command return FALSE as expected and outputs a "Device or resource busy" error

Weird, reports no error on my PC:
Though I asked my friends and it works as expected for them.

Perhaps it's caused by my kernel (2.3.32), will double check with newer one
