When running the following command, the original is moved but not renamed, then the --dotfiles links to the wrong file (even if it does not exist).

> stow --adopt --dotfiles -vS -t ~ -d ~/.dotfiles tmux

> MV: .tmux.conf -> .dotfiles/tmux/.tmux.conf
> LINK: .tmux.conf => .dotfiles/tmux/dot-tmux.conf
