Rename ovewrites existing file on samba mount

Bug Description

Binary package hint: nautilus

I have some remote samba share mounted from Windows XP machine.
Suppose there are two files on this share: test1.txt and test2.txt. When I rename test2.txt to test1.txt using Nautilus it removes existing test1.txt and 'moves' test2.txt to its place.
If I do same operation on local disk I get message "such file already exists, choose another name".
This a bit dangerous since one can unexpectedly loose existing file.

Thanks for the report, it has been some time without any response or feedback in this bug report and we are wondering if this is still an issue for you with the latest release of Ubuntu the Natty Narwhal, May you please test with that version and comment back if you're still having or not the issue? Please have a look at to know how to install that version. Thanks in advance and sorry for the late response.
