What version of FM are you using? I'm using FM 2015 (as part of Tech Comm Suite 2015 -- not sure if that makes any difference), and I just did this in order to create a new doc that's very similar to another doc. I renamed the .book file in Explorer, opened the newly-renamed book file, and within FM did the file rename (by right-clicking on a .fm file in the open .book file). All references were properly updated, with no broken links (xrefs and ToC).

Maybe you're using some other procedure to do the renaming?
