I cannot reproduce this with 2 randomly chosen files, neither in Emacs
23.1 nor in the latest Emacs 23.3.

Does this happen for _any_ 2 files?  If not, can you tell what's
different about these two, or show two files that trigger this?

Could it be that the problem is with the white space embedded in the
file names?  Can you try using the 8+3 short aliases of those parts
that include white space?

This "normally" means that it generally works, but not this time?
