Something failed. Move back to the original state.

Rebooted back into F16. It looks like the issue was that I had a
directory at "/usr/bin/mkdir/". No idea how, looks like it was from
December. Probably my fault, but perhaps usrmove shouldn't fall over
when facing this situation.

If usrmove really reverted everything to its original state, it seems to me like a case of well-behaving error handling after encountering an unusual situation that cannot be resolved automatically and safely.
