      Description

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      File.renameto(File) should specify that in case of success, the File object does *not* get modified to point to the name filename. This isn't obvious from the current documentation.

      Issue #4094022 and http://www.jroller.com/page/ethdsy/20040920 make it clear that this is catching people off guard.
