most of this happens outside of emacs:
mkdir 'escape\ me'
cd 'escape\ me'
touch a
emacs -Q .
C-x C-q
rename the file from a to b
C-c C-c

when I inspect the error, it looks like it is attempting to rename
/home/mjrosenb/tmp/escapeme/a to /home/mjrosenb/tmp/escapeme/b
which fails, because the name of the directory is 'escape\ me', not 'escapeme'

Should be fixed in commit 02bf7cc.
