inodes must be changed on same disk mv'ing
Authored by: ylon on Apr 25, '03 06:29:11PM

That's odd. In this case I don't believe the man page. You'll
notice a serious time differential when comparing `cp -fr` with
`mv`. In the case of moving across file systems/networks, this
is true, however when moving on the same disk, it must be
changing inodes. I guess it's time to pull out the source...
