Right.  This always happens:

(defun dired-rename-file (file newname ok-if-already-exists)
  (dired-handle-overwrite newname)
  (rename-file file newname ok-if-already-exists) ; error is caught in 
  ;; Silently rename the visited file of any buffer visiting this file.
  (and (get-file-buffer file)
       (with-current-buffer (get-file-buffer file)
         (set-visited-file-name newname nil t)))
  (dired-remove-file file)
  ;; See if it's an inserted subdir, and rename that, too.
  (dired-rename-subdir file newname))

Shouldn't dired-rename-subdir be conditioned on either file or newname
being a directory?  Or perhaps both?  Or shouldn't dired-rename-subdir
take care to do the right thing with non-directories?

I'm getting confused now.
