Renaming problem

Trev

The Dumb One
I seem to be getting a lot of " ERROR Target already exists" errors in auto.log. It is to do with renaming files/titles./ Here is an extract from the log

It's obviously something in my sweeper rules, but I can't see what's wrong. Will someone please have a look and tell be the error of my ways, to be punishes by 100 lashes and a public stoning.
Code:
# Remove Title New: prefix
global title New: action {settitle {%orig%replace,New: ,,}}
# Remove Filename New: prefix
global filename New_ action {renamefile {%orig%replace,New_ ,,}}
# File Datestamp DD MMM YY
global filename *20[0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9]_* action {renamefile {%title %2digitdate-%2digitmonth-%2digityear %hhmm}}
# Remove "_" in Filename
global filename _ action {renamefile {%orig%replace,_, ,}}
 

Black Hole

May contain traces of nut
It's your third rule: it's trying to process files that it has already processed, so the resulting rename is to the same thing, but the OS takes this as an attempt to write a file with the same name as an existing file.

Well, that's what I had assumed but omitted commenting to that effect:oops:, but why is it trying to reprocess and why doesn't it try to reprocess rules 2 and 4 and raise a duplicate filename error for each?
If the file has already been processed, surely it won't meet the condition "*20[0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9]_*" and why does it not error on every file? And why does it appear to only error once on each file?

That was my thought too, but the pattern of the renamed file doesn't seem to match.

Looking at the top debug lines, 2058 is obviously rule 3, 2059 (& hence 2060) must be rule 4.
It looks like "global filename _" is (sometimes) matching when it shouldn't, then obviously the replace has nothing to change; hence the error.
