[PATCH] MCI_SAVE should overwrite destination file.

There is a bug in MCI_SAVE which is preventing my application from recording
sound properly.  Here is what is happening: when my app is about to initiate
recording, it creates a temp file using GetTempFileName() and caches the returned
name in a member variable, then calls MCI_OPEN with a blank filename. (causing
MCI to create its own temp file).  When recording is stopped, the app calls
MCI_SAVE with the filename it created earlier.  MCI_SAVE uses mmioRename
to rename mci's temp file to the one requested by the app.  mmioRename
does NOT overwrite files, so it fails... my app doesn't like this. :-)  I tested
in windows that MCI_SAVE WILL overwrite destination files.  So lets make sure
the destination file isn't there before calling mmioRename...
