Oh. Hmm. Yeah, this isn’t very easy to fix. Also it only affects the “ignore” quota, which is quite a special case. A lot of installations are rather just assigning larger quota limit to the Trash folder(s) so the user is able to then finish their deletion. For that use case the RENAME isn’t a problem..
