If I've understood correctly, there seems to be a problem, though,
when directories or files are moved/renamed. It has been said that
this was implemented as a copy+delete. But Mark Benedetto King said
that fulltexts live forever, even if one deletes the branch (here
the branch would correspond to the original filename). And as the
copy would normally be modified since it is the main file (under a
new name), this would give a second fulltext.
