Huh?  The mv command does not dereference symbolic links.  They will
be moved like any other file.  If you would please report the version
(mv --version) of the program, the operating system (uname -a), and a
test case to be able to reproduce the problem.  Thanks.

  ln -s junk foo
  ls -l foo
  lrwxrwxrwx    1 bob      bob             3 Oct 21 16:33 foo -> junk
  mv foo bar
  lrwxrwxrwx    1 bob      bob             3 Oct 21 16:33 bar -> junk
  ls -l bar
