+TargetMilestone: ---
+Summary: File.Move does not work across different filesystems
+Description of Problem:
+If you try to move a file between different filesystems an exception is raised.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Mount a remote filesystem or another partition
+2. Move a file between using the attached sample between remote and local
+Actual Results (sorry, german system):
+** Message: [Invalid UTF-8] Unknown errno: Ungültiger Link über
+Gerätegrenzen hinweg
+Unhandled Exception: System.IO.IOException: Win32 IO returned ERROR_GEN_FAILURE
+in <0x003d0> System.IO.File:Move (string,string)
+in <0x00033> MoveTest.MoveTest:Main (string[])
+Expected Results:
+No exception.
+How often does this happen? 
+Additional Information:
+The function MoveFile in io.c uses the standard C API rename to move the
+file which doesn't work in this context.
