It sounds like, underneath, rename() is creating a new directory and
then attempting to delete the old one, ignoring the files in the
original directory. In which case, you'll have to do it the long way--
create a new directory, move the files, then delete the old directory.

Oddly enough, I can't find a *nix command which will actually rename a
directory. The man pages for mv, rename and such all refer only to
files, not directories.
