Since when does mv require execute permission to move a file???
(note: this is a cross-device "mv", so it's really a cp followed by
rm, as was recently beaten to death by, uh, someone. :-)
since it is cross-device mv, it copy from src to dst. in other words,
read from src and write to dst. to read from src, need to traverse
symlink. to traverse, needs x bit...
