1. Summarise the issue (what were doing, what went wrong?)

darcs initialize 
mkdir d
darcs add d
echo sometext > d/f
darcs add d/f
darcs record -am'added d/f' --skip-long-comment
darcs move d/f .
darcs record -am'moved d/f to .' --skip-long-comment
rmdir d
darcs record -am'removed d' --skip-long-comment
darcs move f d
darcs record -am'moved f to d' --skip-long-comment
darcs obliterate --last=3 --all
darcs whatsnew -l

The last command results in this error message:

darcs: /home/ben/tmp/issueNNNN/test/d: openBinaryFile: inappropriate
type (is a directory)

3. What darcs version are you using? (Try: darcs --exact-version)

2.8.4 (+ 1 patch)

4. What operating system are you running?

This seems to be resolved as the test script no longer fails. Will add
it to the regression tests and move on...

I am re-opening this because I just saw that the test for this issue
still fails for darcs1 repos. BTW, I ran the tests in my clone of reviewed.

Note, the test is issue2382-mv-dir-to-file-confuses-darcs.sh .

It turned out that this was merely an error in the test script, which
did not account for the extra {...} that darcs1 puts around hunks.
Filtering them fixes the test.
