For now, I cannot provide much more details. I have a single processor
machine. When it happens the next time, I will come back to the maillinglist
with everything I can detected. In one of the case I have seen this morning,
both file existed and were writeable by me. It happend twice today during an
export. Somewhere in the export svn stoped with this error message. I do not
think it is a real permission problem, because all files and directories were
freshly created by my account. svn was moving a freshly created tmp-file to
its real name. The most reasonable cause for the problem could be, that some
other application has locked one of the files for a short time. Like the
indexing engine of W2K. If this would be the reason, svn could retry the move
2-3 times.
