Since that's obviously not how Derby is intended to function, don't
assume such tricks will always work in the future. Or even now.

Compress table, rollback of a drop table and other functionality will
all move the files back (I think) to their intended location. In the
future automated space re-allocation work might perform similar renames
on the files.
