RE: FAT32 svn errors

Hmm, yes, that is possible, but I usually disable that service on my
development machines (total waste of cpu/memory/disk IMO). It *is*
turned off now, but I will turn it back on and run for a few days to see
if I start getting failures again.

I wish I could remember who thought of this so that I could credit
them appropriately, but someone suggested that perhaps the Indexing
Service,
or some other such filesystem-crawling-thing was running, holding a
lock,
and preventing the move.

This would explain

  1.) the difficulty reproducing the problem
  2.) the fact that a multi-processor configuration seemed to
      trigger the problem.
