/> Have you done the bash +h thingy ?

All is clear after I re-read my logs in the light of the
replies in this thread.  First, I mis-understood the 
error reports, which were from bash *about* mv.  
Once mv had moved itself, all following mv's 
failed, so I obviously did leave out the +h.

I don't know how this happened, since I cut and paste 
the re-login commands using X on the host system, 
and those commands don't get logged.

I will add 'hash -l'  to my sanity checks every time I re-login.
