    If files with filename equivalents simultaneously show up in the same
    directory, which may happen if you mix filesystems, you may loose
    your files in a copy over. They will disappear flawlessly. :-) An
    alternative approach is that the copy over is aborted, in which case
    what looks as a copy is really nothing like it.
