I guess this should be done in function rename_in_db(), to make sure we cover all present and future situations.

If you force-push a patch that does not apply cleanly, quilt tells you it needs to be refreshed, and creates a marker to remember this under .pc/. If you rename the patch before refreshing it, quilt will forget about this. So it will let you continue even if the patch was not refreshed, and it will never delete the marker.

We need to rename the marker when a patch which needs to be refreshed is renamed. Same is probably needed for the fork command as well, as it's essentially a rename with a backup.

The test suite should cover this scenario.
