You need to
before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
EXACT STEPS LEADING TO PROBLEM:
1. Open X-Term
2. create a new directory, e.g., mkdir d
3. go to the directory, e.g., cd d
4. create a subdirectory of the new directory, e.g., mkdir sub
5. create a file in the directory, e.g., touch f
6. create a file of the same name in the subdirectory, e.g., touch sub/f
7. open file manager and navigate to directory d
8. tap and hold on the file f and choose "Move"
9. select the subdirectory sub as the destination
10. question "Replace existing file of the same name?" appears, choose No
11. file f is deleted from directory d, file in the subdirectory remains
both files remain unchanged
file f is deleted from directory d
EXTRA SOFTWARE INSTALLED:
This is quite serious bug that may lead to user data loss.
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; cs; rv:220.127.116.11)

Raising priority level to Critical due to loss of data.
Reproducible when creating those directories in File Manager as well and not
just through X-term.
Yes, the bug is independent of how the files and directories were created. I
have lost a camera picture when I ran into this bug for the first time.
