"same inode" problems with cygwin svn client

Hi there, I'm not sure what's causing this, but when I rm -rf a repository
recently checked out remotely from subversion I get this rather dangerous
sounding warning:

rm: WARNING: Circular directory structure.
This almost certainly means that you have a corrupted file system.
The following two directories have the same inode number:


I've run chkdsk etc, on the drive (win2k/NTFS) and it finds no problems at

This might be caused because I was playing/testing with the svn cp and svn
rm commands, but I have no idea. I'll keep experimenting today and see if I
can reproduce it. (I have had it twice now in separate repositories)

I can delete the offending directories from the windows File Explorer and
don't get any complaints.

What's going on?

Q-Games, Dylan Cuthbert.
