[digiKam-users] Renaming a folder does not work

 I will test it the days with an NFS share. I also use openSUSE Tumbleweed. I 
looked at the source code of dolphin, dolphin uses KIO::rename(). And 
KIO::rename() deactivates the KDirWatch for the directory before renaming it. 
We also use a QFileSystemWatcher and remove the monitored directory 
beforehand. The QDir::rename function may fail with open files. However, the 
KIO::rename () function also removes the parent directory.
We'll see if that's the problem. It will, however, be fixed only in digiKam 
6.0.0. I also tend to make the QFileSystemWatcher optional because it 
generates many unnecessary events during file operations and not every user 
needs the functionality.
