Summary0002264: Hotlist not saving
DescriptionWhen updating the hotlist, on exit it creates the Hotlist-bk file, but this never gets moved back to Hotlist.

The log suggests the existing Hotlist isn't being deleted (maybe it is locked/in use?)
Steps To ReproduceLoad NetSurf, update hotlist, quit.

This was caused by the non-POSIX behaviour of rename() on AmigaOS. If you're supposed to be using a POSIX library on AmigaOS, you should file a bug against it.

We now call remove() first, but there is still a race condition on for non-POSIX systems; if a hotlist file is created between remove() and rename(), then rename() will still fail.
