    Another annoying issue with cofs:
    ar (to make .a) use rename() so it is impossible to make static libraries on a cofs device.
    I hope this bug will be fixed soon !
    Thanks

    done, see last autobuild for devel version 0.8.0.
    Rename allows to overwrite existing file now.

    The implementation is handled by windows internals. Ask MSDN about 'ReplaceIfExists' for FILE_RENAME_INFORMATION object, if you need to know about error handling.
