10.7: A warning about Finder's 'Replace' feature
Authored by: nova20 on Feb 22, '12 10:38:01AM

I tested this in 10.7.3 and got the same result as crarko: 'replace' deleted both, while 'keep both files' reamed the file. I believe that the 'replace' behaviour is not just dangerous but a clear bug to be reported to Apple.
I also agree with kevans that it's good practice to avoid giving the same name to a folder and an included file or folder.
