Sure. Rule number one identify the file by its absolute filename. If that file 
vanishes and a new one appear with the same md5 sum as the vanished one, then 
rule no two applies, namely identify it by md5 sum.

Oh then we stand no chance :-)
So please do this in two steps. Modify your files, then run recalculate md5 
sums, and then move it.
