[GRASSLIST:4931] overwriting a raster layer with g.rename

I am puzzled by the behaviour of g.rename. The Note in the man pages say:
"However, g.rename will allow the user to overwrite other existing files in the current
mapset by making the new file name that of an already existing file."
I used this property in the following sequence:
map1 produced by some function
map2 produced by some other function
r.patch input=map1,map2 output=map3;
Instead of working smoothly I get the answer:
<map2> already exists in mapset <blah>
Is there a particular command switch to overwrite the file?
Thanks for hints or ways around?
