Oh, I see. I'm not updating destinationState after the destination changed, and
this indeed leads to bugs (e.g. if I try to rename a dir to the name of an existing file,
I get the "foo is a file, but a folder was expected" error, instead of the rename box).

Now I finally understand your patch - sorry it took me so long :-)
Why does it only act on ERR_DIR_ALREADY_EXISTS? Shouldn't it do the same for ERR_FILE_ALREADY_EXISTS?

Also, the KURL(m_dest,newPath) looks wrong. The 2nd arg of that KURL ctor
doesn't take paths (this would lead to bugs with files containing e.g. '#' in their name).
m_dest.setPath(newPath) should be enough.

Updated patch attached, seems to work well here.
