Photoshop Lightroom V3.5 (Raw 6.5) locks up when dragging an image from one folder to another folder in the Library Module when an image with the same name exists in the destination folder. This happens consistently and Lightroom must be terminated by using the Task Manager. No warning of the duplicate name is offered by Lightroom so if dragging a group of images there is no clue as to which one is causing the problem.

Not been able to replicate this on either 3.4.1 or 3.5 (running on Win7 32bit). Did a variety of tests, including single and multiple moves, and every time it worked as I would expect (i.e. the duplicate is detected, a warning is issued that the file cannot be moved, any none duplicated files are moved).

Edit: tested on 64 bit Win7 as well....also works as expected.
