Cannot move segment start address

IDA cannot change the segment start address because this segment with the new start address would overlap another adjacent segment. For example, the following situation:
  seg_a  starts at 0x0000 ends at 0x1000
  seg_b  starts at 0x1000 ends at 0x2000
  seg_c  starts at 0x2000 ends at 0x3000
If you ask to change seg_c so that it starts at 0x500, you'll see this error message, because the new seg_c would overlap seg_b.

Please note that the end address never belongs to the segment in IDA.
