(fails everywhere else, too)

I think this is a consequence of the move to use apr_tmp_dir_get in
revision 7609. Both of my test machines have /tmp and /home on mounted
on different volumes; now apr_file_renams on Unix just calls rename(2),
which does not support cross-volume renames and returns EXDEV instead.

I think this is an APR misfeature. The docs on apr_file_rename say that
"Moving files or directories across devices may not be possible," but I
think the workaround is so simple that APR should just implement it
internally The Windows implementation of apr_file_rename does revert to
copy+delete on cross-volume renames.

Thoughts?
