patch to allow native file move in overwrite with user confirmation

Apologies for the newbie errors! Here is a revised patch containing the same
changes as the previous ones, but split into two commits and with spaces not

I have had a look through the code and I don't think thunar_job_ask_replace can
return THUNAR_JOB_RESPONSE_RETRY. Indeed, the direct "return" statements in
thunar_job_ask_replace only use THUNAR_JOB_RESPONSE_CANCEL, _YES, and _NO.
thunar_job_ask_replace does call thunar_job_real_ask_replace (indirectly, via
the call to exo_job_emit on line 439 in thunar-job.c), which in turn calls
thunar_job_real_ask (via the call to g_signal_emit on line 251), but these only
return _CANCEL, _YES, _YES_ALL, _NO, _NO_ALL (and thunar_job_ask_replace
converts _YES_ALL and _NO_ALL to _YES and _NO).
