Hi Kim,

It would be great if dired mode ("in ido mode") would work as expected and use
ido when 'R'-ing files.
I wonder if you remember the rationale behind disabling ido for
dired-do-rename as by this line in ido.el

         (put 'dired-do-rename 'ido 'ignore)

Any harm in turning ido on for it? Thanks.


As far as I remember it was disabled because - as you type the new name - ido would suggest names of existing files, and when you hit return, the first suggested file (if any matches the new name) is overwritten.

So I think it was too dangerous to enable by default .
