Better fail with E_EXIST if rename(3) fails leads to better handling of the failure downstream, if e.g. this is an attempt to copy a file from the presets to an existing file of a previously partly generated UserInstallation, and the presets and the UserInstallation are on different drives and rename(3) fails with EXDEV. (Without this fix, removing the UserInstallation's registrymodifications.xcu caused restarting soffice to fail with "User installation could not be completed" in this case; regression introduced with 6edbcc1b231feb02f304ff646c323b5df051d9a4 "cid#1242936 handle rename failure.")
