Re: "same inode" problems with cygwin svn client

scratch that... I can't delete it in windows.. explorer freezes so maybe I
do have something wrong in there. However, I've never encountered this kind
of problem before and I use cygwin/win2k extensively. Its a little too much
of a coincidence that it has occured exactly in the svn directory. Is there
some kind of hard-linking going on?

now to run chkdsk again :(
