Working copies on Windows FAT partitions (E.g. usb sticks) broken in 1.6.10, or

See ^/subversion/branches/1.6.x/STATUS:

* r908980, r908981
   This followup on r896915, makes sure that the Windows specific remove
   readonly attribute code still works on FAT32 filesystems. (The FAT32
   driver reports a very different error than the NTFS driver)
   Justification:
     Without this patch, users using a USB stick formatted with this
     filesystem will see 'file exists' errors on some working copy
     operations. (This patch should have been part of the r896915
     group). I certainly don't recommend using FAT32 to host a
     subversion working copy. But AnkhSVN reports show that it is a
     common user scenario.
   Votes:
     +1: rhuijben, pburba

This patch needs one more vote. Anybody?

Without this patch I turn my +1 on r896915 to a -1.

We rolled this patch in an AnkhSVN test version to investigate issue #3574 and we got a lot of errors caused by just this patch reported.

I don't want to cause the same error for more Subversion users.
