Hm, that seems very strange; I'd thought that XEmacs was better than
that. You did do the git mv from XEmacs and not, horror of horrors,
from a separate shell prompt or something similar, right? Emacs users
should never do anything from outside of Emacs; that's like a Unix user
changing a file on disk by using fsdb instead of going through the
kernel's write() system call. :-)

Vi users, of course, should feel free to write and exit, git mv the
file, and edit it again; vi will very conveniently tell you if you're
trying to edit the old one that no longer exists.
